Abstract
<p>Taste research has been hampered by technical difficulties, mostly because liquid taste stimuli are difficult to control in terms of timing and application area. Exact stimulus control requires a gustometer, but the existing devices are either not well-documented or rather inflexible. We designed a gustometer based on a computer-controlled, modular pump system, which can be extended via additional hardware modules—for example, for heating of the stimuli or sending and receiving triggers. All components are available for purchase “off the shelf.” The pumps deliver liquids through plastic tubing and can be connected to commercially available or custom-made mout...
