Sensation & Perception (II) 3270 Lecture 7 smell KEYWORDS ---- TASTE I Taste Primaries: sweet, sour, salty, bitter,
papilla (nipple) types: fungiform (fungus-like), foliate (leaf-like), circumvallate (around the ramparts), taste buds (found on papilla), respond to more than one primary' taste cells (found within taste buds), no axons, connect/synapse with afferent fibres coding of quality, activity across a population, pattern
of firing of nerves related to perceptual abilities in rats (responses to different salts, ammonium, potassium and sodium chloride), most fibres respond to more than one primary KEYWORDS ---- TASTE II taste thresholds depend on: temperature (different
primaries alter differently), tongue region, genetics (phenylthiocarbamide: to 2/3rds of white western folk tastes bitter; 1/3rd no taste), concentration (eg. saccharin low sweet; high bitter), age, adaptation, KEYWORDS ---- TASTE III taste preferences, Humans: sweet (+); bitter (-),
mostly in place at birth; Cats and chickens: indifferent to sweet; rat/cat/rabbit/sheep: salt (+); hamster: salt (-) taste cravings, salt, calcium, potassium, etc.. specific changes in threshold when deprived (eg. for salt) cultural influences, conditioned taste aversion neural pathway, uncrossed, taste cells, VII cranial
nerves (corda tympani division of facial nerve), IX cranial nerve (glossopharyngeal), solitary nucleus, ventral posterior medial nucleus of thalamus,taste cortex (near mouth representation of somatosensory cortex), brain stem vomit centres The 12 Cranial

--- about 10,000,000 (in humans) --- about 1,000 types olfactory receptors (on the olfactory receptor neurones) --- about 1,000 types olfactory binding proteins --- delivers odorants to receptor neurones.
Figure 15.5 (a) A portion of the olfactory mucosa. The mucosa contains 350 types of ORNs and about 10,000 of each type. The red circles represent 10,000 of one type of ORN, and the blue circles, 10,000 of another type. (b) All ORNs of a particular type send their signals to one or two glomeruli in the olfactory bulb. CONVERGENCE The olfactory receptor protein is a G protein.
It crosses the membrane 7 time. Similar to the VISUAL PIGMENT. There are about 1000 variations. A bishops mitre Olfactory

ZONES of the OLFACTORY MACULA & glomerulus GLOMERULI -- balls of tangled connections between MITRAL cells and OLFACTORY RECEPTOR NEURONES. -- four zones (from macula)
-- convergence (about 1,000 to 1) -- olfactory receptor types kept organized -- properties sharpened by lateral inhibition -- send information to ANCIENT paleocortex Figure 15.9 (a) The underside of the brain, showing the neural pathways for olfaction. On the left side, the temporal lobe has been deflected to expose the olfactory cortex. (Adapted from Frank & Rabin, 1989).

HENNING SMELL PRISM Figure 15.2 (a) Two molecules that have the same structures, but one smells like musk and the other is odorless. (b) Two molecules with different structures but similar odors. Figure 15.6 Recognition profiles for some odorants. Large dots indicate that the odorant causes a high firing rate for the receptor listed along the top; a small dot indicates a lower firing rate for the receptor. The
structures of the compounds are shown on the right. (Adapted from Malnic et al., 1999.) Codes in olfactory receptors fibres
chemicals across-fibre pattern coding This sort of coding means you can distinguish many smells at once

(on olfactory receptor cells), glomerulus (contact zones between receptor cells and mitral cells:plural glomeruli), convergence (1,000:1), mitral cell, olfactory tubercle of entorhinal cortex (part of paleocortex), medial dorsal nucleus of thalamus , olfactory neocortex paleocortex associated with limbic system, limbic
system associated with emotions (electrical stimulation causes sham rage), limbic system associated with memories (H.M. had lesions here and lost the ability to memorize things), no topographic mapping in olfactory cortex (unusual), some hot spots in olfactory tubercle and on olfactory mucosa
KEYWORDS -- SMELL II odour quality, no primaries identified in olfactory system, poor tuning of receptors (to chemicals or chemical types) (sharpened by lateral inhibition, inhibitory interneurones, granule cells), Henning smell prism, stereochemical theories based on lock and key partially successful, BUT no receptor sites identified,
similar shaped molecules can be associated with different smell perceptions cells broadly tuned (responding to many different chemicals associated with many different smells) coding intensity= firing rate/recruitment, quality = distributed pattern code, problems in
identifying many smells at once, binding problem KEYWORDS -- SMELL III odour thresholds, olfactorium; unique technical problems!, humans very sensitive (eg. mercaton can be detected at 1 part per 50,000,000,000), affected by gender; can be affected by menstrual cycle,
affected by age adaptation, thresholds raised (by exposure), masking (by other chemicals), some cross effects: eg. adapting to orange affects smell of lemons identification, can identify gender from shirt, prefer own odours, odour memories long lasting; associated with emotions (via limbic system) "designed not to
forget, pheromones, releasers (immediate effect), eg. bitch on heat, territorial markers, humans?, McClintock effect (synchronized menstrual cycles), KEYWORDS -- SMELL IV PATHWAYS olfactory receptor cells to mitral cells in olfactory bulb
