    Different methods to assess olfactory function are presented. Their usefulness in routine clinical situations is limited to special diagnostic situations. However, these methods have provided important insights into the pathophysiology of parkinsonism and can help to identify at . In humans, olfaction is often considered the least acute of the senses, and a number of animals are obviously superior to humans in their olfactory abilities. This difference is probably explained by the larger number of olfactory receptor neurons (and odorant receptor molecules; see below) in the olfactory epithelium in many species and the relatively larger area of cortex devoted to by: 2.

    history, in its broadest sense, is the story of humanity's past. It also refers to the recording of that past. The diverse sources of history include books, newspapers, printed documents, personal papers, and other archival records, artifacts, and oral accounts. Since its first edition in , Patrick McNeill's Research Methods has become a classic introductory text for students of sociology at A level and in undergraduate courses as well as for a range of specialists in education, business, social care and medicine who need a brief but authoritative account of how sociologists set about conducting research.

Research scientists, medical researchers, and olfaction and gustatory experts will find this book invaluable.

Show less Methods of Animal Experimentation, Volume IV focuses on research problems related to animal experimentation, including aging, nutrition, and environmental studies.

Book Description. Written by world experts in the field of neuronal chemoreception, Methods in Chemosensory Research describes new molecular, electrophysiological, genetic, behavioral, psychophysical, and imaging techniques that have recently been adapted to investigate the basic neuronal mechanisms underlying chemoreception: taste, olfaction and chemical-induced irritation.

In Olfactory Receptors: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field contribute chapters that serve to address these challenges. The volume consists of several sections: knowledge dissemination of ORs, theoretical assessments of OR structure and function, as well as development and use of expression systems and experimental functional : Paperback.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. 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.

A comprehensive introductory research methods guide, this textbook provides students with an understanding of the concepts and techniques of qualitative and quantitative research. It uses simple examples and practice exercises to demystify complex theories and methodologies.

In this edition a new chapter The Computer: Its Role in Research have been added keeping in view of the fact tha4/5(12). A variety of behavioral paradigms have been developed to assess the ability of a subject to process olfactory information.

Here, I will examine how the behavioral methods in olfactory research, mostly coming from research on laboratory animals and especially the rodent, aim to give insight and generate hypotheses in the way animals detect, discriminate and memorize olfactory information.
