Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment Psychology of timbre processing
I think this is a great question (I'm a "lower-level correlates" fan, myself), but I think it's going to be hard to take something highly abstract like taste preferences ("Do I like that?" can be a decision based on a very large and multimodal feature space) and map them to neurophysiological processes, like we could for tonal processing and the like.
