Smell and Taste Book Review:

Smell and Taste, Volume 164 focuses on recent clinical research regarding two of our primary chemical senses, smell and taste. This volume is the most comprehensive neurology book on disorders of smell and taste function. Its major sections include epidemiology, anatomy and physiology, and clinical assessment, including neuroimaging, clinical conditions affecting smell and taste function (e.g., autoimmune disorders, head trauma, diseases of the nose and mouth, etc.). The widespread use of olfactory testing in clinical trials searching for biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases is reviewed, along with evidence that smell dysfunction can be an early marker in neurodegenerative diseases and autoimmune disorders. Covers all aspects of disorders of taste and smell for beginning students of various disciplines (neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, otolaryngology) Teaches that smell and taste testing can be useful in differential diagnosis and can assess brain regions not normally assessed by traditional neurological or neuropsychological tests Addresses, in detail, recent evidence that smell loss is a better predictor of future mortality than dementia and even heart disease

Taste and Smell Book Review:

Chemosensory dysfunction is a quite frequently occurring problem which significantly affects the patient's quality of life. It can result from infectious agents, environmental factors, toxins, traumatic brain injuries, as well as neurodegenerative diseases. This publication provides up-to-date articles on the chemical senses including the olfactory, trigeminal and gustatory systems. The vomeronasal system and its potential significance in humans is also discussed. Based on recent functional imaging data, the book provides an overview on how the 'lower senses' function, how they work together, for example to produce flavor, how they can be damaged and repaired, and how the function of human chemical senses can be assessed. The publication focuses on chemosensory dysfunction and pays particular attention to taste and its disorders. Renowned experts in their fields of research have contributed their findings to this topical update on chemosensory disorders and made this volume indispensable reading for otorhinolaryngologists and neurologists.

The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste Book Review:

Smell and taste are our most misunderstood senses. Given a choice between losing our sense of smell and taste, or our senses of sight and hearing, most people nominate the former, rather than the latter. Yet our sense of smell and taste has the power to stir up memories, alter our mood and even influence our behaviour. In The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste, Neil Martin provides a comprehensive, critical analysis of the role of the brain in gustation and olfaction. In his accessible and characteristic style he shows why our sense of smell and taste do not simply perform basic and intermittent functions, but lie at the very centre of our perception of the world around us. Through an exploration of the physiology, anatomy and neuropsychology of the senses; the neurophysiological causes of smell and taste disorders, and their function in physical and mental illness, Neil Martin provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of the processes of gustation and olfaction. The Neuropsychology of Smell and Taste provides a state-of-the-art overview of current research in olfactory and gustatory perception. With sections describing the effect of odour and taste on our behaviour, and evaluating the contribution current neuroimaging technology has made to our understanding of the senses, the book will be of interest to researchers and students of neuropsychology and neuroscience, and anybody with an interest in olfaction and gustation.

Smell and Taste Complaints Book Review:

This practical, brief guide to diagnosing and treating causes of disorders of smell and taste is the only accessible handbook available for non-experts. Signs of problems with these two senses may be ignored by the patient or downplayed by the physician, but the disruption of the senses may be a first sign of serious illness. The wide range of conditions responsible for disorders of smell and taste make it difficult to determine the single underlying cause and to decide upon the best possible plan of treatment. Disorders of Smell and Taste will help physicians manage some of these patients thereby minimizing references to specialists. * The only accessible handbook available for the non-expert * Pocket-sized guide provides easy access for clinicians * Practical and brief, this handbooks aids physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of sense disorders.

Navigating Smell and Taste Disorders Book Review:

"Demos Health and the American Academy of Neurology Present a New Book for Patients with Smell and Taste Disorders Over 200,000 people visit doctors each year for smell and taste problems. Since our ability to smell and taste decreases with age, up to 14 million Americans aged 55 and older may live with these disorders, undiagnosed. Smell and taste disorders affect a person's ability to enjoy food and drink and may result in decreased appetite, weight loss, and too much added sugar and salt in the diet. In severe cases they may lead to depression. Smell and taste problems can also interfere with personal safety, limiting the ability to notice smoke and potentially harmful chemicals and gases. Navigating Smell and Taste Disorders is a unique collaboration between a doctor and a food consultant that both addresses the subject of smell and taste loss and provides food preparation tips and a special recipe section that will appeal to other senses and make food attractive again. This is a must-have reference book for all those living with smell and taste disorders. The book covers the whole disorder including How smell and taste work Causes of smell and taste problems Treatments What you can expect when you visit a specialist Recipes that will appeal to other senses and make food attractive again First-person accounts of coping with this disorder Navigating Smell and Taste Disorders is the inaugural book in the series Neurology Now Books from the American Academy of Neurology. Inspired by Neurology Now, the AAN's leading neurologic patient information magazine, Neurology Now Books are written from a multidisciplinary approach, combining the expertise of a neurologist with other related experts and patients and caregivers. Each volume will provide the reader with the most up-to-date information, answers to questions and concerns, and first-person accounts of others who are living with a neurologic disorder."

Virtual Taste and Smell Technologies for Multisensory Internet and Virtual Reality Book Review:

Currently, Internet and virtual reality communication is essentially audio-visual. The next important breakthrough of the Internet will be the communication and sharing of smell and taste experiences digitally. Audio-visual stimuli are frequency based, and they can be easily digitized and actuated. On the other hand, taste and smell stimuli are based on chemical molecules, therefore, they are not easy to digitize or actuate. To solve this problem, we are required to discover new digital actuation technologies for taste and smell. The authors of this book have experimented on developing digital actuation devices for several years. This book will provide a complete overview of the importance of digitizing taste and smell, prior works, proposed technologies by the authors, other state of the art research, advantages and limitations of the proposed methods, and future applications. We expect digital taste and smell technologies will revolutionize the field of multisensory augmented reality and open up new interaction possibilities in different disciplines such as Human Computer Interaction, Communication, and Augmented and Virtual Reality.

Nose Dive Book Review:

The ultimate guide to the smells of the universe--the ambrosial to the pungent, and everything in between--from the author of the acclaimed culinary guides On Food and Cooking and Keys to Good Cooking. From Harold McGee, James Beard award-winning author and the leading expert on the science of food and cooking, comes the extensive and wide-ranging exploration of the awe-inspiring world of smell. In Untitled on Smell, McGee takes us on a sensory-filled adventure, from the sulfurous aroma of the nascent earth over four billion years ago, to the sweetly fragrant Tian Shan mountain range north of the Himalayas, to the keyboard of your laptop, where trace notes of formaldehyde escape between the keys. We'll sniff the ordinary (wet pavement, bonfires, and cut grass) and extraordinary (fresh bread, wine, and chocolate), the delightful (roses, incense, and vanilla) and the unpleasant (skunks, spoiled meat, and rotten eggs). We'll smell each other. We'll smell ourselves. Through it all, McGee familiarizes us with the actual bits of matter that we breathe in--the molecules that trigger our perceptions, that prompt the citrusy smell of celery root and beer and the medicinal smell of daffodils and sea urchins. And like everything in the physical world, molecules have history. Many of the molecules that we smell every day existed long before any creature was around to smell them--before there was even on a planet for those creatures to live on. Beginning with the origins of those molecules, which is the very origin of the universe and earth itself, McGee moves outward through time and space, through the smells of the air and the oceans, the forest and the meadows and the city, all the way to the smells of incense, perfume, wine, and food. Here is the story of the world, of all of the smells under our collective nose. A work of astounding scholarship and originality, Untitled on Smell distills the science behind the smells and translates it, as only McGee can, into an accessible and entertaining guide. Incorporating the latest insights of sensory biology and flavor chemistry, and interwoven with personal insights, McGee reveals how our sense of smell has the power to expose invisible, intangible details of our material world and life, and trigger in us feelings that are the very essence of being alive.
