Sensory Receptors
Molecules of various materials are also dispersed or dissolved in the fluids (saliva) of the mouth. These molecules are from the food ingested (taken in). Organs known as taste buds are scattered over the tongue and the rear of the mouth. Special hair cells in the taste buds are chemoreceptors to react to these molecules.

Olfactory Sensory Pathway
The information received by the hair cells of the taste buds is transmitted to the opposite side of the brain by way of three cranial nerves. This information is interpreted by the cerebral hemispheres as the sensation of taste.
