1. Mammalian taste receptors are distributed within several distinct subpopulations, innervated by branches of cranial nerves VII, IX, and X. Most gustatory electrophysiology has focused on input from the fungiform papillae on the anterior portion of the tongue, carried by the chorda tympani branch of the VIIth nerve. However, laryngeal taste buds in the hamster are as numerous as those in the fungiform papillae. Gustatory fibers in the hamster's chorda tympani and glossopharyngeal nerves have… CONTINUE READING
