    Abstract

    The use of multidimensional scales is outlined for two problems in odor perception. Multidimensional analyses of profile data allow the experimenter to obtain, at a glance, the necessary information about qualitative relations among odorants and their linguistic descriptors, as well as changes in the perception of the same odorant evaluated across time. All can be represented by the analysis procedures of multidimensional scaling.
