As one of our primary senses, taste plays a key role in our avoidance or acceptance of food, medicine or anything else that must be ingested. This reaction is complex, and the study of it reaches across the tradtiional boundaries of psychology, pharmacology, and neurobiology. Dr. Linda Parker is one of the leading researchers in theis field of interrelated disciplines, having pursued extensive work in how drugs modify the palatability of tastes and preferences for places.
