THIS WEEK IN FOOD NEWS

How does the human brain experience taste?
 
Scientists have recently gotten one step closer to solving an intractable mystery: what food tastes like to the brain. While scientists have figured out how sight, hearing, and touch translate into neural signals, they’ve long failed to map the “gustatory cortex”—or, the patterns that result as a response to tastes in the mouth.

One reason it’s so difficult to show how taste registers in the brain, says Cornell University cognitive scientist Adam Anderson, is because our feelings keep getting in the way. To get a clearer picture, Anderson’s research team at Cornell wanted to try to isolate the physiology of taste from the the emotional side of eating. To do so, the team conducted taste tests—a lot of them. Their findings were published this month in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Communications.
