Detecting the taste (gustation) is fairly similar to detecting odor (olfaction), given that both taste and smell rely on chemical receptors being stimulated by certain molecules.The large circumvallate papillae contain up to 100 taste buds from a V near the posterior margin of the tongue.

Umami:One of the five basic tastes, the savory taste of foods such as seaweed, cured fish, aged cheese and meats.

Olfactory:Concerning the sense of smell

Receptors:A protein on a cell wall that binds with specific molecules so that they can be absorbed into the cell in order to control certain functions,

The senses of smell and taste combine at the back of the throat.When you taste something before you smell it, the smell lingers internally up to the nose causing you to smell it.Both smell and taste uses chemoreceptors, which essentially means they are both, sensing the chemical environment.This chemoreceptors in regards to taste , occurs via the presence of specialized taste receptors within the mouth that are referred , to as taste cells and are bundled together to form taste buds.These taste buds , located in papillae which are found across the tongue, are specific for the five modalities: salt, sweet sour, bitter and umami.These receptors are activated when their specific stimulus the is present and signals to the brain.

After a smell enters the nose, it travels through the cranial nerve through the olfactory bulb, which helps the brain process. smells.The olfactory bulb is part of the limbic system, the emotional center of the brain.Olfactory has a strong input into the amygdala , which process emotions.The kind of memories that it evokes are good and they are powerful.

It was this perfume my grandmother use to get from avon and if I would smell it on someone other than her all I could think about is her.

Each taste bud is made up and around 50 to 100 cells called gustatory receptor cells.When these cells are activated, they send signals to an area of the brain called insular cortex, also known as the gustatory cortex, which makes us conscious of the perception of taste.

Taste is similar to smell, say your grandmother used to use this specific season to cook fish and someone else does it the same exact way.The first thing that’s going to come to your mind when you taste the fish is your grandmother.
