The interrelationships between respiration, mastication, and swallowing were studied in awake rabbits previously prepared for the chronic recording of jaw movements and the electromyographic activity of jaw and throat muscles. These signals were recorded before, during, and after the mastication of rabbit chow, together with respiratory movements. 2. The onset of activity in the thyrohyoid muscle was used as a marker for swallowing. Measurements were made of cycle duration, and the phase… CONTINUE READING
