Olfaction and Taste by Y. Zotterman Book Resume:
International Symposium Series, Volume 1: Olfaction and Taste covers the proceedings of the First International Symposium on Olfaction and Taste, held at the Wenner-Gren Center, Stockholm, Sweden on September 1962. This symposium aims to explore the physiological and psychological aspects of olfaction and taste. This book is composed of 29 chapters and begins with the surveys of the physiology and morphology of the sensory receptors in certain groups of animals. The succeeding chapters describe the fundamental substrates of taste and the effect of temperature change on the response of taste. These topics are followed by discussions on the human taste nerves, taste stimulation and preference behavior, some thalamic and cortical mechanisms of taste, and the role of taste and smell in food and water regulation. The final chapters consider the basic principles of human body’s thermoreceptors and the gustatory relay in the medulla. This book is of great value to researchers in the fields of olfaction and taste and related fields.
Smell and Taste Complaints by Christopher H. Hawkes Book Resume:
This practical, brief guide to diagnosing and treating causes of disorders of smell and taste is the only accessible handbook available for non-experts. Signs of problems with these two senses may be ignored by the patient or downplayed by the physician, but the disruption of the senses may be a first sign of serious illness. The wide range of conditions responsible for disorders of smell and taste make it difficult to determine the single underlying cause and to decide upon the best possible plan of treatment. Disorders of Smell and Taste will help physicians manage some of these patients thereby minimizing references to specialists.
Olfaction, Taste, and Cognition by Catherine Rouby,Benoist Schaal,Danièle Dubois,Rémi Gervais,A. Holley Book Resume:
The human organs of perception are constantly bombarded with chemicals from the environment. Our bodies have in turn developed complex processing systems, which manifest themselves in our emotions, memory, and language. Yet the available data on the high order cognitive implications of taste and smell are scattered among journals in many fields, with no single source synthesizing the large body of knowledge, much of which has appeared in the last decade. This book presents the first multidisciplinary synthesis of the literature in olfactory and gustatory cognition. Leading experts have written chapters on many facets of taste and smell, including odor memory, cortical representations, psychophysics and functional imaging studies, genetic variation in taste, and the hedonistic dimensions of odors. The approach is integrative, combining perspectives from neuroscience, psychology, anthropology, philosophy, and linguistics, and is appropriate for students and researchers in all of these areas who seek an authoritative reference on olfaction, taste, and cognition.
The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste by G. Neil Martin Book Resume:
Smell and taste are our most misunderstood senses. Given a choice between losing our sense of smell and taste, or our senses of sight and hearing, most people nominate the former, rather than the latter. Yet our sense of smell and taste has the power to stir up memories, alter our mood and even influence our behaviour. In The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste, Neil Martin provides a comprehensive, critical analysis of the role of the brain in gustation and olfaction. In his accessible and characteristic style he shows why our sense of smell and taste do not simply perform basic and intermittent functions, but lie at the very centre of our perception of the world around us. Through an exploration of the physiology, anatomy and neuropsychology of the senses; the neurophysiological causes of smell and taste disorders, and their function in physical and mental illness, Neil Martin provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of the processes of gustation and olfaction. The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste provides a state-of-the-art overview of current research in olfactory and gustatory perception. With sections describing the effect of odour and taste on our behaviour, and evaluating the contribution current neuroimaging technology has made to our understanding of the senses, the book will be of interest to researchers and students of neuropsychology and neuroscience, and anybody with an interest in olfaction and gustation.

Taste and Smell by Thomas Hummel,Antje Welge-Lüssen Book Resume:
Chemosensory dysfunction is a quite frequently occurring problem which significantly affects the patient's quality of life. It can result from infectious agents, environmental factors, toxins, traumatic brain injuries, as well as neurodegenerative diseases. This publication provides up-to-date articles on the chemical senses including the olfactory, trigeminal and gustatory systems. The vomeronasal system and its potential significance in humans is also discussed. Based on recent functional imaging data, the book provides an overview on how the 'lower senses' function, how they work together, for example to produce flavor, how they can be damaged and repaired, and how the function of human chemical senses can be assessed. The publication focuses on chemosensory dysfunction and pays particular attention to taste and its disorders. Renowned experts in their fields of research have contributed their findings to this topical update on chemosensory disorders and made this volume indispensable reading for otorhinolaryngologists and neurologists.
