    Abstract

    The aim was to study if odors evaporated by an olfactory display prototype can be used to affect participants' cognitive and emotion-related responses to audio-visual stimuli, and whether the display can benefit from objective measurement of the odors. The results showed that odors and videos had significant effects on participants' responses. For instance, odors increased pleasantness ratings especially when the odor was authentic and the video was congurent with odors. The objective measurement of the odors was shown to be useful. The measurement data was classified with 100 % accuracy removing the need to speculate whether the odor presentation apparatus is working properly.
