This clip shows the conduction and processing of gustatory stimuli. The gustatory impressions are transformed into nerve impulses by the sensory cells of the tongue and the pharynx. The impulses ascend to the brain in three different cranial nerves (vagus nerve, facial nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve). They reach the region of the cerebral cortex responsible for processing gustatory impulses over the gustatory nucleus in the brain stem and the diencephalon.
