This Introduction outlines the relevance of sense memories and the focus of this book on the basis of a number of guiding questions: Why do smells, flavours, sounds and images sometimes evoke such intensely vivid emotional childhood memories? How does the brain process these special experiences? What are the benefits of having sense memories? What do they mean for personal well-being?

Keywords:   senses, memories, arts, sciences, education, health care, well-being
