Taste, Olfaction, and the Central Nervous System

A Festschrift in Honor of Carl Pfaffmann

By: Donald W. Pfaff

Publication date: January 1984

ISBN: 9780874700640

Taste and olfaction often work in collaboration. Olfaction as a distance chemoreceptor has certain different biological functions than the more contactual chemoreception of taste. This collaboration is the topic of this book.

Title information

In this book, we discuss a field of work that links neural mechanisms with behavior. Modern summaries of the requirements for patterns of activity across nerve fibers, as well as the usefulness of more narrowly tuned taste receptive fibers for the direction of particular behavioral responses, are included.
