1. Although taste experience generally arises from a mixture of gustatory stimuli, most neurophysiological studies of the mammalian central gustatory system have focused on responses to single chemical stimuli. Recently, in a study of single third-order neurons in the hamster parabrachial nucleus (PbN), we reported that mixture suppression occurs in the responses to binary mixtures of sucrose and QHCl presented to the anterior tongue. Mixture suppression was reflected both in reduced response… CONTINUE READING
