Abstract

The importance of taste and smell in discrimination of tastes was examinedin normal and anosmic mice. We studied the influence of olfaction on tastesensation using behavioral and electrophysiological methods in both normalanimals and animals made anosmic mice by destroying their olfactory receptor cells with zinc sulfate (ZnSO4) solution. Electrophysiological responsesfrom chorda tympani nerves showed that peripheral taste receptor cells transmitted taste signals normally to the central nervous system, even when the olfactory senses were abnormal. Behavioral observations showed that mice with abnormal olfaction could not differentiate tastes. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.
