Fig. 3. Response profiles for various stimuli of a typical QHCl-best neuron (NST43Q) belonging to ethanol (EtOH)-non-responsive cells. Neuronal firings for each tastant during the 10-sec stimulus are shown in filled bars, and the pre- and post-rinse periods with distilled water (dH2O) for 5 sec are shown in open bars. The stimuli applied to the anterior tongue were sucrose (S), NaCl (N), citric acid (C), QHCl (Q), 3, 5, 10, 15, 25, and 40% of EtOH, and dH2O at 40°C and 4°C. This neuron only responded to 32 mM QHCl as a taste stimulation.
