Abstract:
Future perspectives in smell and taste disorders. Large sections of the medical community have, in the past, thought of human olfaction as a minor sense that was destined to disappear soon. This view has changed completely in the last two decades. This article will attempt to highlight the most important recent advances in our understanding of the human olfactory function and focus in particular on questions for the future and developments required in this field.
