Book Description

Olfaction and Taste V is a collection of the proceedings of the fifth international symposium held at the Howard Florey Institute of Experimental Physiology & Medicine, University of Melbourne, Australia, October 1974. Contributors discuss the knowledge about olfaction and taste, including the anatomy of receptors and their ultrastructure, innervation of receptor fields, and the processes of receptor """"turnover"""". Themes ranging from taste modifiers and receptor proteins to afferent coding; how the sensory code for taste and olfaction are processed and sharpened
