If we put two substances having different taste on tongue simultaneously how it will taste? Does specific part of tongue is sensitive to specific taste?

    $\begingroup$ The popular "tongue map," which depicts the tongue having distinct regions where you can only taste certain tastes, is completely inaccurate and was debunked quite a while ago. There are regions of the tongue that are slightly more sensitive to tastes, however. A google search of "taste map" or "tongue map" will yield links on the origins of the myth. $\endgroup$
