  • Background: Because the rehabilitation of proper of eating and swallowing is important, the motor function of tongue has been highly studied due to its role in these processes. In addition, the previous studies have reported that the plasticity in the primary motor cortex and the primary somatosensory cortex are induced by tongue-task training. Objective: This pilot study aimed to verify the possibility of neuroplasticity in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) by the visually guided direction… CONTINUE READING
