Medical Laboratory Scientist (Food nutritional balance)

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and he began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the adaptively evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: "The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences" followed an award winning 2001 publication: "Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology," which was coauthored by distinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Credentials Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than three decades to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of behavior. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people. Advances in molecular diagnostics are most evident in new technology used in the microbiology department of medical laboratories. James V.
