Fetus reactions to taste examined using 4D ultrasound


Researchers used four-dimensional ultrasound to assess how fetuses responded to flavor capsules that their mothers had consumed and found that fetuses at 32 to 36 weeks react favorably or unfavorably to taste and smell. "Given that experimental evidence indicates that prenatal flavor experience is embedded and is accessed postnatally in humans, it could be argued that repeated prenatal flavor exposures may lead to preferences for certain flavor profiles that are consistent with flavor experienced postnatally in very different contexts," the researchers wrote in Psychological Science.
