 Lost Sense of Taste is Regained Within 10 Days

Taste cells regenerate, or turn over, about every 10 days, making it possible to regain the lost sense of taste within days, reveals a new study.

According to University of Virginia neuroscientist, David Hill, olfactory receptor neurons are constantly dying and being replaced, which can give researchers new understanding of how these neurons are able to regenerate and what they learn from the taste system could be applied broadly to our understanding of neurology.


The findings demonstrated the importance of diet during pre-natal development. He has shown that the taste system is highly malleable, and taste preferences and aversions can be modified prior to birth, just as preferences can change throughout life based on changing diets.

The study is published in The Journal of Neuroscience.
