Published recently in the online FASEB Journal, a study by a group of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has revealed that sneezes are seen as a reboot of the nose. The team says it is just as a computer system reboots after temporarily showing a blue screen.
It has been discovered in the study that it is the biological nature of a human nose that causes one to sneeze. Since, sneeze causes pressure and the same helps in clearing the nasal passage, thereby resetting the system of trapping particles for analysis.
The review had been conducted on mice, which was focused to look at how they cleared mucus. It was found that mice tended to reset the cells biochemical responses when were made to be exposed an air puff.
As per the findings, the trial was then carried out on human nasal tissue. But, the same revealed a bit different results as compared to the previous trial. The team found that people with normal nasal cells responded to the artificial sneeze, while those with sinusitis were not influenced. Since, such people often tend to sneeze.
However, it is being hoped that the findings may be helpful in discovering a treatment for nose disorders.
