Tasting and Smelling presents a comprehensive overview to research on these two important modes of perception. The book offers a review of research findings on the biophysics, neurophysiology, and psychophysicsof both senses, as well as discussing the emotional component associated with taste and smell, and clinical disorders affecting each of these two senses. Tasting and Smelling answers how odors and flavors are perceived, why we have favorites, and what happens when our senses go awry. This book is of interest to the researcher in perception, cognition, or neurophysiology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...the book does a good job of highlighting the large body of problems that still challenge a fundamental understanding of human taste and smell perception. Highly recommended." --CHOICE "This six-chapter volume focuses on human taste and smell, and on perception and cognition... The selection of authors is excellent, as they are leaders in their respective fields... A major theme throughout the volume is that we should seek to understand the chemical senses with respect to their function in the real world... This book is recommended both for those in and out of the field of chemoreception, as well as those who are especially interested in human perception and cognition. It serves as a fine introduction to current provocative issues." --The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 74, #3, September 1999
