In the present chapter we will summarize some important functional properties of the human trigeminal chemosensory system in the nasal, ocular and oral mucosae. Among others, we will address issues related to candidate molecular receptors for trigeminal chemesthesis, chemesthetic sensitivity (i.e., detection thresholds), structure-activity relationships, detection of chemical mixtures, and temporal properties of trigeminal chemesthetic sensations.
