Tongue Map a Myth

cigarettes to vaping e cig juice

As children, many of us were taught in school that that different parts of your tongue have receptors for different flavors. We experience bitter tastes at the very back of our tongue, sweetness at the tip, and salty and sour flavors along the sides, with a relative taste bud dead zone in the middle. OR SO WE WERE LEAD TO BELIEVE. (More on that later).
The tongue zone theory was stems from a paper written by Harvard psychologist Edwin G. Boring (real name), which was itself a translation of a German paper published in 1901. The original German paper merely suggested that there exist minute differences in threshold detection levels across the tongue. Nothing too exciting, but the translation--like a game of telephone--soon turned this information into different levels of sensitivity, and the next thing you, know tongue maps are appearing in textbooks as a matter of fact.
Though still widely taught in schools, this theory has been long since disproven. Although some parts of the tongue may be able to detect a salty or sweet taste before others, all parts are equally able to convey sensations of all tastes. In short: all taste sensations come from all regions of the tongue.
