Journal Article: Kinetic models of sweet taste (1992)

Abstract: New and old models in analytical pharmacology may be useful in the study of chemosensory phenomena. The mechanism by which sweet-tasting molecules exert their effect on taste neurons is similar to the mechanism by which beta-adrenergic agonists affect cardiac…

Journal Article: Modeling the sweet taste of mixtures (1991)

Abstract: Perceptions resulting from the simulation of the chemical senses presumably begin with molecular interactions between chemicals and some form of transduction mechanism. This mechanism may involve receptors and specific transducer proteins, such as G proteins. Many mechanisms can be…
