Several such agents, with varying intrinsic activities and specificity, have been or are now being tested in vivo, mainly as antipsychotic agents. In fact, these agents may test two different, though somewhat related, hypotheses: First, that a preferentially or selectively acting dopaminergic autoreceptor agonist may have antipsychotic properties, though with fewer side effects than the classical neuroleptics, and second, that a partial dopamine receptor agonist may possess a suitable intrinsic activity to avoid extrapyramidal side effects, including tardive dyskinesias, and yet be sufficiently antagonistic on postsynaptic receptors to allow for an antipsychotic action.

Is it the nerve that innervates them or properties at the location of the taste buds? We know in h u m a n s that we taste sweet things better in the front of the tongue and bitter tastes are more pronounced in the back. However, not all animals exhibit this same taste pattern.
