Sevoflurane Impairs Olfactory Memory.....

Comment: I expect that this has important implications on animals as well as, humans. Probably more so in animals that use olfactory cues more than humans. If anestethics can cause changes in olfactive memory it would be interesting to consider how other environmental factors may also influence this ability, the extent and how long the effects last.
