It is a tremendous honor to introduce this issue about sensory aspects of eating. The contributing authors are all renowned researchers in their areas. They provide us with answers to questions we’ve all wondered about concerning how we taste, smell, and make food choices.
Linda Bartoshuk and colleagues present us with an excellent description of the anatomy of taste and smell, its genetic and pathologic variability, and an up-to-date synopsis of how one can diagnosis and treat chemosensory disorders. Links between oral sensory changes and swallowing disorders are an important area for future research. Julie Mennella and colleagues provide us with an outstanding review of normal chemo-sensory development in an infant. We can only wonder what happens to our youngest patients with dys-phagia if they are not able to ingest nutrition orally from birth.
