Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells

...f the brain's olfactory system then categorize and combine these compounds into a recognizable scent. According to the researchers, it's as if the brain has to listen to each musician's melody to hear a symphony. Humans may rely on the same smell decoding system, because mice and men have similar brain struc...

Scientists solve sour taste proteins

... sour or salty taste. In action, the two proteins combine to form "ion channels," porelike proteins in the membranes of taste cells, Matsunami said. These channels in turn control the flow of calcium ions, or electrically charged forms of calcium, in and out of the cells. This flow of ions essentially condi...
