Chemosensory Perception publishes original research, original data reports (such as GC-O spectra, or gene deorphanization results), and review papers covering the connection between chemical, sensory, and neurological sciences. It features interdisciplinary work that links these areas together.

Coverage in Chemosensory Perception includes animal work with implications for human phenomena and explores the following areas:

  • Identification of chemicals producing sensory response
  • Identification of sensory response associated with chemicals
  • Human in vivo response to chemical stimuli
  • Human in vitro response to chemical stimuli
  • Neuroimaging of chemosensory function
  • Neurological processing of chemoreception
  • Chemoreception mechanisms
  • Psychophysics of chemoperception
  • Trigeminal function
  • Multisensory perception
  • Contextual effect on chemo-perception
  • Behavioral response to chemical stimuli
  • Physiological factors effecting and contributing to chemo-perception
  • Flavor and hedonics
  • Memory and chemo-perception
  • An interdisciplinary journal, drawing primarily from chemistry neuroscience and psychology/sensory science, dedicated to improving understanding of the human chemosensation
  • Its mission is to inspire communication across disciplines and accelerate advances in chemosensory perception
  • Led by globally recognized editorial board members, each of whom are leaders in their respective fields

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
