The largest collection of basic, clinical, and applied knowledge on the chemical senses ever compiled in one volume, the third edition of Handbook of Olfaction and Gustation encompass recent developments in all fields of chemosensory science, particularly the most recent advances in neurobiology, neuroscience, molecular biology, and modern functional imaging techniques. Divided into five main sections, the text covers the senses of smell and... more...

Examines the biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy of the olfactory, gustatory, and trigeminal chemosensory systems. The text explores the role of olfactory assessment in disease diagnosis and provides an up-to-date review of chemosensory research. in the medical, food, beverage, flavour, perfume, and energy industries.

Mammalian pheromones, audiomones, visuomones, and snarks―Richard Doty argues that they all belong in the same category: objects of imagination. For more than 50 years, researchers―including many prominent scientists―have identified pheromones as the triggers for a wide range of mammalian behaviors and endocrine responses. In this provocative book, renowned olfaction expert Richard L. Doty rejects this idea and states bluntly... more...

Testing the sense of smell is often omitted or trivialized during neurological examination. This comprehensive review will address this shortcoming by emphasizing the significance of this important sensory modality. The Neurology of Olfaction describes the anatomy and physiology of human olfaction and how it may be measured. The book covers neurologic disorders in depth and a comprehensive chapter is devoted to neurodegenerative disorders,... more...
