In the task, the delivery of one of eight different odours indicated that the monkey could lick to obtain a taste of sucrose. If one of two other odours was delivered from the olfactometer, the monkey had to refrain from licking, otherwise he received a taste of saline. 2%) responded differently to the different odours in the task. The neurons responded with a typical latency of 180ms from the onset of odourant delivery.

The fact that the connections and operation of even such a phylogenetically old system as the taste system have been reorganized in primates may be related to the importance of cortical processing in primates especially for vision, so that other sensory systems follow suit in order to build multimodal representations of objects, which are motivationally neutral and can be used for many functions, including inputs to systems for recognition, identification, object-place memory and short-term memory as well as for reward decoding in stimulus-reinforcement learning systems.

Umami tastant inosine 5'-monophosphate were more correlated with their responses to monosodium glutamate than to any prototypical tastant. Thus neurophysiological evidence in primates does indicate that there is a representation of umami flavour in the cortical areas which is separable from that to the prototypical tastants sweet, salt, bitter, and sour (see further Rolls, Critchley, Browning and Hernadi 1998a). This representation is probably important in the taste produced by proteins (cf. Chaudhari et al.
