Handbook Of Perception Volume 6a by Edward C. Carterette


Original Title: Handbook Of Perception Volume 6a

Handbook of Perception, Volume VIA Tasting and Smelling focuses on the psychophysics of tasting and smelling and covers topics ranging from food technology and the neurophysiology of taste to the chemistry of odor, the neural code, the olfactory process, and chemical signals in the environment. This volume is organized into five sections encompassing 10 chapters and begins with a historical overview of taste research, followed by a discussion on the biophysics and chemistry of taste and its phylogenetic basis in vertebrates. The focus then shifts to the nature of taste qualities, the psychophysical methods of studying them, and the influence on taste sensation of factors such as intensity, duration and area of stimulation. The important phenomenon of adaptation is well covered, with attention to the role of water. The book methodically introduces the reader to the pleasantness or unpleasantness of a food, the physicochemical basis of olfaction, information processing in the olfactory nerve pathway, and the relationship between molecular structure and odor. A chapter on the extraneous stimulation caused by industrial processes, the psychophysical foundation for applications of olfactory research, and real and potential applications in the realm of odor abatement concludes the volume. This book will serve as a basic source and reference work for psychologists and natural scientists, as well as for those who are interested in human perception.

Molecular Neurobiology Of The Olfactory System by F.L. Margolis


Original Title: Molecular Neurobiology Of The Olfactory System

The sense of smell and the olfactory system have been a subject of intrinsic interest for millenia. Inquiry into the structure and function of the olfactory system is based on a long tradition that dates back at least to the ancient Greeks. The mechanistic basis for the sensitivity and selectivity of this chemosensory detection system has always posed a challenge and remained largely a mystery. Recently, there has been a renaissance of interest in it and especially in the application of contemporary techniques of biochemistry and cellular and molecular biology. In this volume, current research utilizing these ap proaches is discussed in depth by a group of scientists who are among the current leaders in the applications of these techniques to the olfactory system. These authors address a wide range of questions that bear directly on the olfactory system but have broader biological implications as well. The various chapters have been grouped into five broad subject areas that emphasize diverse but related questions. "Transduction and Ligand-Receptor Interactions" considers the biochemical bases of stimulus access, interaction, transduction, elimination, and information processing.

Sensation And Perception by Margaret W. Matlin


Original Title: Sensation And Perception

This book sets the standard in bringing technical scientific information on the subject of sensation and perception to a wide audience with outstanding readability and thorough coverage. Retaining its traditionally clear and accessible writing style, this new edition boasts a thoroughly revised art program and over 1,300 new references. The motion chapter now focuses solely on visual motion perception, so it appears earlier in the book. In addition, the book includes thirteen In-Depth sections, each of which explore a current ¿hot¿ research topic to provide a sense of how researchers ask questions with subjects varying from the role of face recognition in eyewitness testimony to phantom limb perception.
