Each taste bud can detect one.

The tongue's receptors are taste buds. They are specialized to detect flavors, and are divided into two types, sweet and bitter receptors. They can detect perceptions of flavors in five types; salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and umani (savory).

There are 10 million receptors in your nose.

not sure how many, but it's 90% of all sensory receptors are in the eye

there are four receptors:sweetsoursaltybitter

dogs have 1,000 more scent receptors then a human

There are six different kinds of sensory receptors in the skin.

Studies have shown that it can increase brain activity as it stimulates many nerve receptors. The taste and continual chewing keeps your brain awake and active.

There are many sense organs in the body like touch receptors, pressure receptors, heart receptors, taste receptors, sound receptors, etc. All these receptors when stimulated result in changes in tone or isometric contraction of skeletal muscles around them or in the entire body.Sensation:Sensation is the observation of change in tone of skeletal muscles induced by a single sense organ.Thus, heat, sound, etc are sensations.Feeling:Feeling is the observation of changes in tone of skeletal muscles induced by many sense organs or continuous changes in a single sense organ.Thus, coffee induces a feeling and so does a song.

When heroin enters the brain, it is converted back into morphine, which binds to molecules on cells known as opioid receptors. These receptors are located in many areas of the brain, especially those involved in the perception of pain and in reward. Opioid receptors are also located in the brain stem, which controls the automatic processes of life, such as blood pressure, arousal, and respiration. Heroin overdoses frequently involve a suppression of breathing.

Many hormones act at intracellular receptors to produce long-term changes in cellular activity by altering the genetic expression of enzymes, cytokines or receptor proteins.

im not sure but they taste pretty good

There are 200 pain receptors for every square centimeter in your body!!

AnswerThere is no such thing as "areas" of taste in the tongue. The taste buds are all spread out on the tongue and each taste bud has taste cells only responding to one class of dissolved chemical stimulus. Yes, we still taste the traditional 4 flavors (bitter, sweet, sour, salty) however, there are many more flavors such as umami (savory), dryness, etc...

Your fingers.... Although fingers do contain many touch receptors, the feet are the most sensitive area of a humans body, most touch receptors are found in the skin.

Yes. There are many proteins embedded in the phospholipid bilayer. Some of these proteins are enzymes, and some are receptors; the receptors are glycoproteins, with short chains (oligosaccharides) of sugar residues attached to the protein. Other proteins act as means of transporting atoms, ions, and molecules across membranes (channel and carrier proteins).

There are a number of sensory receptors and these perceive: 1. light (eye) 2. sound (ear) 3. balance (eye + ear +joints) 4. pain (many locations, some surface and some deep) 5. touch (usually light) 6. pressure (usually deep) 7. taste (tongue and mouth) 8. smell (nose and throat) 9. proprioception (usually joints and muscles)

There are two gills located on each side of a perch. The Opercula is the covering that protect the gills.

Much of what most people consider "taste" actually is smell. Most fruit really tastes pretty similar... if you plug up your nose so you can't smell it, the difference between two fruits of similar acidity and sweetness is mainly in the texture. So, in that sense, yes. There is no direct causal relationship on a physical level because taste and smell are mediated by different types of receptors detecting different types of chemical compounds. Smell is carried from olfactory receptors in the nose to the brain via the Olfactory Nerve (cranial nerve I). Taste is carried from gustatory receptors on the tongue to the brain via the Facial Nerve and the Glossopharyngeal Nerve (cranial nerves VII and IX). However, these signals are integrated extensively in the cerebrum and many connections are made. Therefore, it is plausible that the mere smell of a certain type of food can elicit the memory of the taste of that particular food.

They are located in several diffrent regions of the nigeria ocean, they roam free with many black people and enjoy the taste of calculators

there are only one gill on each side of a fish

yes, you can still taste Your taste buds do not connect to a central core prior to sending the chemical compounds to your brain. Splitting the tongue will probably kill quite a few taste buds (not as many as smoking, but still bad). I do believe that taste buds can not heal, but the types are spread throughout your tongue. Each section of the outer area of your tongue has a majority to each taste, such as the tip of your tongue contains mostly sweet sensing tastebuds, but those taste buds are still found throughout your tongue.

So many that you can taste the rainbow. Go on, taste it!
