what is the stimulus of taste?

do i just say when something touches your tongue. i don't know how to explain it.

for smell, i put odors and chemicals. is that right?

for vision, i put light, color, movement?

i need help on taste, itching, pain, pressure, temperature stimulus.

for temperature, do i put cold and heat.

For taste, our taste buds differentiate between salt, bitter, sour, sweet. Those are the sources of all types of "tastes".



I searched Google under the key words "human sense stimuli" to get these possible sources:

For vision, the wavelengths of the light determine the perceived color and the amplitude of the waves determine the perceived intensity. Changes in these on receptor cells (rods and cones) could be perceived as movement.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
