In almost every field of life science, sensory mechanisms play a significant role in understanding the perceptual processes which underlie the cognitive function of men and animals. The present book is the record of an advanced study held at the Royal Academy of Science in Amsterdam in 1965. Two subjects are covered: olfaction and taste and vestibular and cochlear mechanisms.
Olfaction and taste has been discussed by neuroanatomists to provide the structural background and neurophysiologists to provide data on the transmission of signals from the receptors to the brain. Examination of the vestibular system and model systems of the vestibulae and cochlear mechanisms are covered in the second part.
This book should have its greatest appeal to academically oriented otolaryngologists.
