Overview

Covering the entire spectrum of chemoreception, each section not only describes what information can be obtained by using each method, but a lso shows how to apply each method to obtain reliable results. The boo k presents a comprehensive view of how the brain uses information abou t chemical stimuli that interact with receptors in the nose and tongue . Methods in Chemosensory Research gives you the new tools to learn ho w chemicals affect activity from the genetic to the behavioral levels.
