The Chemistry of Chemoreception in Vertebrate Sensory Systems
In a first section we will try to understand the organization of chemoreception from the chemical-structure/sensation relationship. In a second section we will briefly touch on the biochemical evidence for olfactory and taste receptors. In the last section we will study a family of proteins that are models for olfactory receptors.
