The Ecology of Happiness
Related research on intrapersonal functions followed and accompanied this research - how
emotion regulates and sustains personality and cognitive style differences for example. A book on the

fragrances, odorants, pheromones, and body mood odors. These substances, detected by the olfactory
system communicate emotion and influence mood, memory, reaction time and social behavior.
