Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recovery from adaptation to NaCl was tested by comparing some relevant parameters of response to the adapting and test stimuli separated by different recovery intervals. The time course of response was determined using magnitude estimations and using the flow chamber for stimulus delivery. The course of recovery for all parameters used was a negatively accelerated function of the rest time, but the recovery rate of different parameters did not prove to be equal. Recovery was fastest for the initial maximum taste magnitude, followed by the time needed for the taste to disappear. The taste effect summed over time and the time required for the taste magnitude to decrease to 30% of its preadapted maximum were the slowest to recover. Although the recovery processes proceeded at a rapid rate during the initial period, all parameters remained depressed over a rather long period.
