Caption

Three-dimensional visualization of the anatomical structures related to smell and taste based on scanned human data. The sensations of smell and taste are closely related; only 20% of the perception of taste originates from the tongue alone. The remaining 80% is interpreted through nerve cells that are situated in the uppermost portion of the nasal cavity. Two regions of the cerebral cortex are dedicated to processing information related to taste and smell. The gustatory cortex (taste) is a small region located on the temporal lobe near the ear and the olfactory cortex (smell) occupies an area of the frontal lobes just above and between the eyes.
