Taste pathway only explains the concepts and components embedded in taste phenomena in humans.
The major concepts are papillae of the tongue, innervation of the tongue and neural pathways to the brain.
Some sensations are relevant in this concept as well and they are touch, temperature and pain.
Taste basically involves the interaction of several sensitive signals. These sensitive signals are as follows:
- Temperature and pain
- Oil refractory
- Accessing signals.
Finally, one important component of the taste concept is the lingual papillae. It has different shapes which are vallate papillae, fungiform papillae, foliate papillae and filiform papillae.
