In her book "Three Pound Enigma: The human Brain and the Quest to Unlock Its Mysteries", Shannon Moffett talks about a study of Doctor John Gabrieli and his relation with the endorse of Freud's theories:

"It was precisely one of these students who convinced Gabrieli to allow him to use the fMI to study the sense of smell, and who then showed that the inhalation of chemical substances can affect the brain without them being smelled conscientiously."

Moffett,S.(2006)*Text translated with an engine from non original english version, pg77.

She says:

"Although modern scientists often dismiss it as superstition, there are those who believe that Freud's theory acquires merit and renewed vigilance in the light of these investigations."

My question is if modern understand of brain do corroborate in fact Freud's theories or not.
