Orbitofrontal cortex: neuronal representation of oral temperature and capsaicin in addition to taste and texture.

Abstract:

The primate orbitofrontal cortex is a site of convergence of information from primary taste, olfactory and somatosensory cortical areas. We describe the discovery of a population of single neurons in the macaque orbitofrontal cortex that responds to the temperature of a liquid in the mouth. The temperature stimuli consisted of water at 10 degrees C, 23 degrees C, 37 degrees C and 42 degrees C. Twenty-six of the 1149 neurons analyzed (2.3%) responded to oral temperature. The tuning profiles of...
