Mgr. Lenka Martinec Nováková, Ph.D.

Lenka MARTINEC NOVÁKOVÁ, assistant professor

Research Area

  • Human Ethology

I work as an assistant professor at the Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Humanities, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic and a senior researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health, Klecany, Czech Republic. My research interests include the chemical senses, particularly olfaction and trigeminal perception. I am interested, among other topics, in the development of olfaction and the inter- and intra-individual differences therein, formation of olfactory preferences, olfactory deficits in neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, olfactory memory, and olfaction in sleep and its effect on affective state in waking life.
