However, recent findings (reviewed in this chapter) confirm that our perception of flavour is influenced by the information presented to all of the senses. In this chapter, particular attention is given to looking at the role of visual and auditory cues in modulating flavour perception. This chapter also attempts to highlight how cognitive neuroscience insights from the study on the non-chemical senses have started to transform our understanding of multisensory flavour perception.
