We study whether the red nucleus (RN) lesion can modify rhythmic jaw movements. Rhythmic jaw movements were induced by repetitive electrical stimulation of the two cortical masticatory areas (area A: the orofacial motor cortex; area P: the insular cortex). Lesions made by applied electric current in the RN were found to influence the rhythmic jaw movements induced by stimulation of A-area. The distance between the maximum and minimum jaw-opening positions was less after the lesions were induced… CONTINUE READING
