One of the most rapidly advancing areas in neuroscience is the detection of
nutrients. This has been assisted greatly by the de-orphaning of receptors, and
the study of their function by disabling or deleting their expression. Progress
in understanding nutrient detection by the tongue, in the form of taste, has
translated quickly into studies of similar processes in the gut epithelium.

Articles covering different nutrients and other ingested compounds, mechanisms
of sensory transduction and neural/behavioral responses to exogenous toxins
and pathogens are all encouraged. There are different viewpoints on
chemosensory mechanisms in the gut lumen, and commentary and discussion of
these is most welcome.
