Most concepts related to physiology and pathology of olfaction has been related to abnormalities in neural function related to changes in central nervous system disorders or in disorders of olfactory nerves. While these events have been useful in understanding olfactory physiology and pathology most pathology of olfactory detection lies in problems related to olfactory receptor function not to the neural correlates per se. This brief review introduces pertinent information which relates to the role that olfactory receptors, their physiology and their pathology play in olfactory function.
