Gustatory System

  • Linda M. Bartoshuk


Taste sensations do not have the complexity of auditory and visual sensations; rather, the most salient attributes of taste sensations are simply quality and intensity. The nature of taste quality has been debated by taste scientists for decades. Psychophysical studies of human taste have tended to emphasize the four basic taste qualities bequeathed to us by the nineteenth century, while electrophysiological studies of the neural coding of taste quality in other species have challenged this classical view. A large portion of this chapter is devoted to this apparent conflict and the information about taste quality that it has generated.
