In collaboration with researchers led by Professor Benedikt Grothe (Head of the Division of Neurobiology in LMU's Department of Biology II) and a team based at Munich University Medical Center, Drexl has carried out a laboratory study which shows that low-frequency sounds, though virtually imperceptible, actually have a surprisingly strong effect on sensory cells in the inner ear.
It's not just the tiny sensory cells in the hearing organ (cochlea) that are damaged by noise but also the nerve fibres between the ears and the brain.
To enhance the sensation of taste in products, they focused their work on analyzing aroma-taste interactions and the heterogeneous distribution of tastants--compounds that stimulate the sensory cells in taste buds.
