Demystifying Medicine Video



This video debunks tongue maps — the idea that there are five different tastes localized to specific areas of the tongue. Although tongue maps are a myth without supporting evidence, they are still being taught to children in school. This animation video will explain where the myth came from, define what a tongue map is, explain how taste works in a rudimentary way and show that tongue maps do not exist.
