Tongue and Taste

  1. Food Preferences May Be Established Before Birth (ABC News)
      "If you don't have an appetite for certain kinds of food you may want to have a chat with your mother."

      "Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, a pioneering reseach center devoted to taste and smell, has found critical periods in the first seven months of life in which tastes are developed for certain types of food." 04-06

  2. Smell and Taste (American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery )
      "Smell and taste belong to our chemical sensing system (chemosensation). The complicated processes of smelling and tasting begin when molecules released by the substances around us stimulate special nerve cells in the nose, mouth, or throat. These cells transmit messages to the brain, where specific smells or tastes are identified." 04-06

  3. The Sense of Taste (Kimball's Biology)
      "Taste is the ability to respond to dissolved molecules and ions called tastants."

      "Humans detect taste with taste receptor cells. These are clustered in taste buds. Each taste bud has a pore that opens out to the surface of the tongue enabling molecules and ions taken into the mouth to reach the receptor cells inside." 04-06
