Different areas of the human tongue have sensitivities to different tastes. Each of these areas contains proportionately more of certain chemoreceptors. Typically, the middle-front of the tongue is more sensitive to sweet tastes, the sides to salty tastes, the center-back to sour tastes, and the very back to bitter tastes.

Are taste buds more sensitive to different flavors on different parts of the tongue?

Supposedly, there are different types of taste buds on different areas of the tongue. It is hard to actually prove this, since your saliva spreads the taste all over. Some scientists feel that this is not true anyway, but you can experiment. Get four samples of tastes - sweet, bitter, salt, and sour (make sure they are fairly wet samples because you will be drying your tongue off!). Stick out your tongue and dry it off with a paper towel. Then touch a drop of each taste to different spots on your tongue. The traditional spots are: * Bitter - back of the tongue * Sweet - front of tongue * Sour - one spot on each side of the tongue toward the front * Salt - one spot on each side of the tongue toward the back


What tastes does the tongue detect?

There are different taste buds in our tongue. There is sweet at the front, salty at the middle, and bitter and sour all way further to the end of your tongue. So when we eat certain types of food, such as cucumber, which is sweet in our tongue, our other taste buds do not function yet but our sweet taste bud does.

Why do some baseball players refuse to sign the sweet spot?

I've never heard of a ballplayer refusing to sign a sweet spot. This might just be an isolated incident. If anything a ball player if handed a baseball will most likely sign on the sweet spot. the sweet spot is the most desirable spot for an autograph for a single-signed baseball. The sweet spot is the section of a baseball typically reserved for the team manager on team signed baseballs or the top stars on the team. If a group of players are signing a baseball they might not sign the sweet spot in respect for the player or players that it is reserved for.
