Sense of Taste

  • The tongue is sensory organ that can detect sweet, bitter, sour and salty tastes.
  • Other kinds of taste are the combinations of these four major tastes.
  • Different areas of the tongue are sensitive to different types of tastes.
  • Picture below show the parts of the tongue that respond to different types of tastes.

Without sense of smell, it will influence our appetite. We cannot fully enjoy the flavours of food and drinks.
