Thermal taster status: evidence of cross-modal integration
Hort, Joanne and Ford, Rebecca A. and Eldeghaidy, Sally and Francis, Susan T. (2016) Thermal taster status: evidence of cross-modal integration. Human Brain Mapping . ISSN 1097-0193
Thermal taster status refers to the finding that, in some individuals, thermal stimulation of the tongue elicits a phantom taste. Little is known regarding the mechanism for this, it is hypothesised to be a result of cross-wiring between gustatory and trigeminal nerves whose receptors co-innervate papillae on the tongue.
