Chemoreception the sensory and biological aspects of taste, smell, pheromones, perfumes, fragrances, soaps, cosmetics, essential oils, foods, flavorings, aromas, spices, and much more
Human Sensory Systems
Nervous system and senses the nervous system consists of two types of cells. Nerve cells are called neurons. Various support cells are associated with the neurons, most typically, Schwann cells
Pheromones a class of chemicals that are communicated between animals of the same species and that elicit stereotyped behavioural or neuroendocrine responses

How We Taste Analyzing How We Taste
Physiology of taste The sense of taste is mediated by groups of cells called taste buds which sample oral concentrations of a large number of small molecules and report a sensation of taste to centers in the brainstem

Sense of taste 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

Taste a tutorial on the physiology of taste, giving the basic anatomy of the gustatory system, a description of the taste papillae, taste buds, the regional distribution of taste papillae, an evaluation of the validity of taste maps, and including an explanation of taste transduction mechanisms, the different classes of taste receptors and ion channels. A definition and explanation of the five different taste modalities, e.g. sweet, salt, sour, bitter and umami, and how they are detected
Taste receptors the sense of taste evolved to afford organisms the ability to detect nutritionally important compounds, including sugars, salts, and amino acids, as well as potentially harmful substances, such as alkaloids and acids
The Tongue and mouth
Tongue The tongue manipulates food in the mouth and is used in speech. The tongue is very sensitive. It helps to move food around the mouth whilst not being bitten. The surface is covered with papillae that provide friction and contain the taste buds
Tongue taste receptors the tongue is a strong muscle in the mouth that is covered with papillae (small bumps on the tongue) and taste buds (that sense bitter, salty, sweet, and sour tastes). The taste buds are clustered along the sides of the tongue
