Pulsatile stimulation enhances taste intensity compared to continuous stimulation with stimuli of the same net tastant concentration. In the present work, we studied the effects of pulsatile delivery of aroma and taste on their combined contribution to taste intensity. Effects on taste perception were evaluated for aroma and taste pulsation and the aroma(More)
Oral stimulation with high-tastant concentrations that are alternared with low-tastant concentrations or water rinses (pulsatile stimulation) results in taste intensity ratings that are higher than continuous stimulation with the same average tastant concentration. This study tested the combined effects of taste pulsation rate and viscosity on(More)
Effects of subjects' taste sensitivity (expressed as taste detection threshold), tastant quality and taste transduc-tion mechanism on pulsation-induced taste enhancement were tested. Taste intensities of pulsatile MSG and NaCl stimuli at pulsation periods below, at and above individual taste fusion periods (TFP in seconds) were compared to taste intensities(More)
