Central Processing of Sensory Information in the Control of Feeding

  • J. Le Magnen
Part of the Progress in Sensory Physiology book series (PHYSIOLOGY, volume 8)


External sensory systems subserve behaviors. In this respect, sensory modalities fall into one of two categories. For example, vision and hearing, which are involved in a large variety of different behavioral responses, can be classified “generalists,” whereas, its somesthetic systems (e.g., olfaction and taste) can be considered “specialists.” Olfaction primarily subserves feeding behavior, while taste does so exclusively.
