Current research relies on the piriform cortex as an indicator of successful odor imagery. Using colored arrangements as visual stimulation, we seek to show that the piriform cortex is mainly linked to odor perception. Our results support this hypothesis by showing a clear lack of activation in this area during odor imagery. Furthermore this study definitively highlights the use of colored arrangements in an odor imagery study compared to other visual stimulation and its benefits.
