Functional and evolutionary morphology of lingual feeding in squamate reptiles: phylogenetics and kinematics
Use of the tongue as a prehensile organ during the ingestion stage of feeding in lizards was studied cinegraphically in seven species. Within Squamata, lingual prehension is limited to a singleExpand

The effects of bolus hardness on masticatory kinematics.
This study investigated how jaw kinematics, including cycle duration, three-dimensional (3-D) excursive ranges and velocities, and cycle shape, changed with increasing hardness of chewing gum.Expand

Oral food processing in two herbivorous lizards, Iguana iguana (Iguanidae) and Uromastix aegyptius (Agarnidae)
The anatomy and function of the feeding apparatus in Iguana iguana and Uromastix aegyptius were studied by dissection, cinematic and cineradiographic techniques.

Normal masticatory performance in young adults and children.
Previous studies have paid little attention to either the development or sexual dimorphism of masticatory performance. The aim of this study was to measure and compare the masticatory performance ofExpand

Masticatory performance in children and adolescents with Class I and II malocclusions.
It is not fully understood whether masticatory performance is compromised in individuals with the more common forms of malocclusion (i.e. Class I and Class II). The aim of this prospectiveExpand

Masticatory performance and areas of occlusal contact and near contact in subjects with normal occlusion and malocclusion.
This preliminary study evaluated relationships between masticatory performance and areas of interocclusal distance contact (<50 microm) and near contact (50-350 microm) of the buccal segments duringExpand

Morphological and positional asymmetries of young children with functional unilateral posterior crossbite.
This prospective clinical study evaluated the morphological and positional mandibular asymmetry of young patients with functional unilateral posterior crossbite. The sample included 9 girls and 6Expand

Occlusal results after open or closed treatment of fractures of the mandibular condylar process.
PURPOSE This study compared the occlusal relationships after open or closed treatment for fractures of the mandibular condylar process. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 137 patients with unilateralExpand

Associations between incisor and mandibular condylar movements during maximum mouth opening in humans.
This study evaluated the common clinical assumption that condylar translation and mouth opening at the incisor are closely related. The sample studied comprised 27 adult females (23-35 years),Expand
