Taste and Smell Book Review:

Medicinal chemistry is both science and art. The science of medicinal chemistry offers mankind one of its best hopes for improving the quality of life. The art of medicinal chemistry continues to challenge its practitioners with the need for both intuition and experience to discover new drugs. Hence sharing the experience of drug research is uniquely beneficial to the field of medicinal chemistry. Drug research requires interdisciplinary team-work at the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine. Therefore, the topic-related series Topics in Medicinal Chemistry covers all relevant aspects of drug research, e.g. pathobiochemistry of diseases, identification and validation of (emerging) drug targets, structural biology, drugability of targets, drug design approaches, chemogenomics, synthetic chemistry including combinatorial methods, bioorganic chemistry, natural compounds, high-throughput screening, pharmacological in vitro and in vivo investigations, drug-receptor interactions on the molecular level, structure-activity relationships, drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, toxicology and pharmacogenomics. In general, special volumes are edited by well known guest editors.

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."

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

Life Kitchen Book Review:

'Life Kitchen is a celebration of food' Lauren, Sunderland 'The recipes are just really simple, really easy and delicious' Carolyn, Newcastle 'His book is better than a bunch of flowers because it's going to last forever' Gillian, Sunderland Ryan Riley was just eighteen years old when his mum, Krista, was diagnosed with cancer. He saw first-hand the effect of her treatment but one of the most difficult things he experienced was seeing her lose her ability to enjoy food. Two years after her diagnosis, Ryan's mother died from her illness. In a bid to discover whether there was a way to bring back the pleasure of food, Ryan created Life Kitchen in his mum's memory. It offers free classes to anyone affected by cancer treatment to cook recipes that are designed specifically to overpower the dulling effect of chemotherapy on the taste buds. In Life Kitchen, Ryan shares recipes for dishes that are quick, easy, and unbelievably delicious, whether you are going through cancer treatment or not. With ingenious combinations of ingredients, often using the fifth taste, umami, to heighten and amplify the flavours, this book is bursting with recipes that will reignite the joy of taste and flavour. Recipes include: Carbonara with peas & mint Parmesan cod with salt & vinegar cucumber Roasted harissa salmon with fennel salad Miso white chocolate with frozen berries With an introduction from UCL's taste and flavour expert Professor Barry Smith, this inspiring cookbook focusses on the simple, life-enriching pleasure of eating, for everyone living with cancer and their friends and family too. 'This book is a life changer: this is not gush, but a statement of fact' Nigella Lawson

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.

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.

Smellosophy Book Review:

A pioneering exploration of olfaction that upsets settled notions of how the brain translates sensory information. Decades of cognition research have shown that external stimuli “spark” neural patterns in particular regions of the brain. This has fostered a view of the brain as a space that we can map: here the brain responds to faces, there it perceives a sensation in your left hand. But it turns out that the sense of smell—only recently attracting broader attention in neuroscience—doesn’t work this way. A. S. Barwich asks a deceptively simple question: What does the nose tell the brain, and how does the brain understand it? Barwich interviews experts in neuroscience, psychology, chemistry, and perfumery in an effort to understand the biological mechanics and myriad meanings of odors. She argues that it is time to stop recycling ideas based on the paradigm of vision for the olfactory system. Scents are often fickle and boundless in comparison with visual images, and they do not line up with well-defined neural regions. Although olfaction remains a puzzle, Barwich proposes that what we know suggests the brain acts not only like a map but also as a measuring device, one that senses and processes simple and complex odors. Accounting for the sense of smell upsets theories of perception philosophers have developed. In their place, Smellosophy articulates a new model for understanding how the brain represents sensory information.
