The feasibility of using the electroglottograph (EGG) to record and measure aspects of the swallow was tested in six nonimpaired, two parkinsonian, and two dysphagic subjects. Low-frequency changes in tissue impedance across the neck were recorded with an EGG during deglutition. On six nonimpaired subjects, EGG waveforms were consistently monophasic and(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Central control of swallowing is regulated by a central pattern generator (CPG) positioned dorsally in the solitary tract nucleus and neighboring medullary reticular formation. The CPG serially activates the cranial nerve motor neurons, including the nucleus ambiguus and vagal dorsal motor nucleus, which then innervate the muscles of(More)
