A study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience has found that exposure to specific fragrances during sleep may significantly enhance cognitive function in older adults (60-85 years old). Researchers found that inhaling certain scents, like rose and lavender, led to improved memory and problem-solving skills upon waking. This suggests a potential way to enhance brain function during sleep using olfactory stimulation.
