“What goes on in our mouths is one of the least significant aspects of what happens when we experience food.”

Those are the words of Dr. Charles Spence from the University of Oxford, who argues that there is nothing more stimulating to the brain than food.

The scientist’s research has discovered that what actually decides whether we like a food or not is not our taste buds, but the neurotransmitters that interact with our brain.
