In man, signals from the gastric receptors acting through the central nervous system play an important part in regulating the reaction of the gustatory receptor apparatus. A considerable reduction in the sensitivity of taste receptors tested on the tongue was caused by food introduced directly into the stomach through a fistula, so that to by-pass them.
The paper describes the effect produced by prolonged oxygen inhalation on the changes occurring in taste sensitivity of subjects on a strictly planned diet. No changes occur in the taste sensitivity of humans placed in a barochamber with an atmospheric pressure corresponding to an altitude of 5500 m and gas mixture with an increased oxygen content for 2.5–8… (More)
To examine the degree to which the in teroceptors of the stomach and the taste r ecep to r s of the ora l cavity contribute toward the gast rol ingual reflex, a method of blocking them separa te ly with anesthesin was developed. The dose and time of action of anesthesin for which the sensit ivity of the taste r ecep to r s was blocked for long enough to… (More)
