This brief illustrated resource about the sense of taste is part of a feature that explores how humans experience flavor. The five taste qualities--including umami--are mentioned. The resource also corrects the misconception that humans can only taste certain food qualities at specific regions of the tongue. A set of connected, labeled diagrams of the tongue, taste buds, the brain, and facts about taste are noted in a sidebar. One fact compares the average number of taste buds in humans, chickens, and catfish, and other facts invite readers to examine related activities on this science of cooking web site. A similar resource about smell is available. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
