Taste-olfactory convergence, and the representation of the pleasantness of flavour, in the human brain.
The functional architecture of the central taste and olfactory systems in primates provides evidence that the convergence of taste and smell information onto single neurons is realized in the caudal orbitofrontal cortex (and immediately adjacent agranular insula).
