Gonna check these out re:If spicy foods preemptively spike my olfactory system, could prolonged use have an attenuating effect (entirely speculative)?
I know that we lose olfactory and flavor receptor cells over the course of our lifetimes, and it makes sense in terms of the general mechanics of neurophysiology that more action potentials lead to earlier neuron death.
But I suppose it also depends a lot on what you mean by "spike [your] olfactory system".
Oh, that's interesting. Would you care to briefly explain why/how that happens, on that neurophysiological level? Or possibly link to something else, if it's worth it to be more verbose? That changes the way I thought about those sorts of things.
These might be helpful:
it makes sense in terms of the general mechanics of neurophysiology that more action potentials lead to earlier neuron death.Cause that's not entirely intuitive, for some reason.
Entirely unrelated, enjoying the new Michael Moore doc more than I thought I would.
