  • Gustatory system is the sensory system responsible for the perception of taste and flavour, which determines feeding and appetitive learning behaviors. Taste receptor cells encounter chemicals in foods and transmit this information to the gustatory neurons, which convey it further to the gustatory relay nuclei in the lower brainstem.
