Gustatory processing begins when a motivated animal searches for and detects a desired food, usually using visual and=or olfactory cues. Once a 34 A. J. OLIVEIRA MAIA et al. desired substance is found, the decision to pursue and maintain consumption usually involves active oral exploration. , its flavour, will be a central contributor in the decision of ingestion vs. rejection [153]. Gustatory decision making is also impacted by the organisms’ internal state. The central nervous system (CNS) detects a multitude of neural and humoral signals from the periphery, reflecting several aspects of homeostatic balance such as gastrointestinal status, current energy needs and availability, and energy stores [27].

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) signaling is necessary for transmission of taste information to the CNS. Tastant evoked ATP release activates P2X2=P2X3 ionotropic purinoreceptors on primary gustatory afferent nerve terminals [48]. Serotonin and norepinephrine are also released from taste buds upon chemosensory stimulation, but their functional role is not as clear as that of ATP [68, 76]. Other transmitters, peptides and respective receptors, namely acetylcholine, glutamate, cholecystokinin (CCK), vasoactive intestinal peptide, substance P and leptin, have also been identified in taste cells.
