CHRISTMAS LECTURES 2005: John Krebs - Yuck or yummy?
About this video
What makes some foods delicious while others are disgusting? In this lecture John introduces us to the extraordinary complexity of our sense of taste, and how the role of smell is even more significant. He explains how the brain plays the biggest role in our perception of food, setting expectations, and judging whether what we eat satisfies, exceeds, or fails to meet these expectations entirely.
