About this Research Topic
This Research Topic is aimed towards collecting the present knowledge of structure and function of sensory receptors in the animal kingdom, as well as the mechanisms of signal transduction and downstream signal amplification. The term sensory receptor applies for sensory modalities reflecting the outer world (vision, audition, olfaction etc.), the inner world (pH, osmolarity, glucose level etc.) or both such as temperature and pain.
