The article reports on research that attempted to solve the problem associated with the dislodging of parotid cups during saliva collection on human subjects. The method for effective collection is discussed and illustrated with several figures. The new method allows subjects to talk while collection is taking place.

    Individuals vary largely in their salivary flow and composition, and given the importance of saliva on perception of taste, this might influence how the tastant stimuli are perceived. We therefore hypothesise that altering the individual salivary flow rates has an impact on the perceived taste...
