Abstract

Coded pair comparisons of the relative intensity of 4 primary-taste stimuli are subjected to logic analysis. The tie-in of the model with standard psychophysical concepts is demonstrated. Estimation of relative intensity (the mean results are: sucrose: sodium chloride: citric acid: quinine sulfate = 1:14:220:2300) and the evaluation of errors are discussed.
