Français : Illustration indiquant, dans la cavité nasale, la position de l'ouverture du canal nasopalatin (4) et du canal voméronasal (2). Chez la plupart des mammifères, ces canaux permettent le passage des informations phéromonales recueillies par le léchage ou le flehmen. Chez l'être humain, ces canaux sont en général obturés et les molécules phéromonales ne peuvent plus passer de la bouche à l'organe voméronasal.
