Scientists have shown how people recognize different tastes of food

Every day we consume different foods in food — sweet, bitter, salty. Of course, first and foremost for determining the answer tastes receptors on the follicles of the tongue, but in any case the information obtained is still being processed at the level of the brain. Despite the fact that research in this direction started long ago, on finding the exact parts of the brain responsible for taste, did not work so many scientists. Therefore, Japanese experts with our American colleagues have tried to shed light on this question.

Scientists conducted an experiment, which they managed to make so-called “gustatory cortex” human brain — in other words, they determined which areas of the brain are responsible for specific tastes (for details on the study can be found in Nature Communications). First 20 people tried liquid different flavours — from sour to sweet, and then the researchers conducted an fMRI experiment where participants re-tried the liquid, but in the scanner. So they managed to determine which parts of the brain aktiviziruyutsya for every taste.

In this picture you can see how the lid of the brain responds to bitter, sweet, sour and salty tastes.

It turned out that the taste area of the human brain is comprised of the Insula lobe, and the caps have certain similarities with animals, in which the “gustatory cortex” is located in a similar way. Unlike human region that the divisions of the Insula shares of our brain is able to determine the intensity of the flavors (they aktiviziruyutsya different). To find out, participants were given fluids with different content of bitter (magnesium chloride), sweet (glucose) elements.

As aktiviziruyutsya insular share for different flavors

According to scientists, such studies are important because they allow to explain the difference in the taste preferences of the person and to identify the behavioral threshold in determining the taste. Recognition of flavors is one of the important components as it allows to distinguish safe food from dangerous: for example, bitter food is often associated in humans with something harmful than sweet.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
