The first evidence for between species differences in single-cell neural firing was presented by Beidler et al. (1955) and Pfaffmann (1955), a point that was later exploited by Frank (1973) in the use of the hamster as a model for species, such as the human, that exhibit salient responsiveness to sweet-tasting stimuli. These observations were harbingers for the more recent discoveries of the receptors that largely defined their afferent activity. , 1973, 1975). The first studies to directly stimulate sectors of the human brain in conscious patients so as to map brain centers associated with taste and smell were those of Foerster (1936) and Penfield and Faulk (1955).

This was first demonstrated in the culture of olfactory organs from embryonic mice (Farbman, 1977) and used to show the importance of olfactory bulb in promoting differentiation of the olfactory sensory neurons (Chuah and Farbman, 1983). The next major development came with the investigations of dissociated cultures from embryonic and newborn rats (Calof and Chikaraishi, 1989; Pixley, 1992a). , 2000). , 1998). Thus, establishment of the topographical map from the receptor cells to the glomeruli seems to require neither normal neural activity in these pathways nor cues provided by the major neural cell types of the bulb.

Young 1949). Previously Richter and MacLean (1939) had raised the possibility that the taste threshold might be determined by the salt content of saliva. After McBurney and Pfaffmann’s research, the effects of salivary constituents on taste function became the focus of numerous human psychophysical and animal electrophysiological studies. These studies led to the realization that saliva affects not only the perception of salty tasting stimuli, but also the taste of stimuli that induce the other classic taste qualities, as well as fatty tastes and tactile sensations such as astringency (Spielman, 1990; Matsuo, 2000; Bradley and Beidler, 2003).
