About this book

This updated version is an introduction to the study of the chemical senses (taste and smell). The interdisciplinary study of the chemical senses has given us a window into many complex brain functions. It involves a wide range of disciplines, including neurobiology, molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and psychology.

...a fascinating glimpse into recent advances... (British Journal of Neurosurgery)
