Tongue map

I always taught that the tongue map did not suggest that ONLY certain parts of the tongue were ONLY sensitive to certain tastes but that certain parts were more sensitive than other parts. As noted in this article, threshold sensitivity may differ across the tongue, but intensity of sensation does not.
