A lthough there have been a number of studies that involved the function of jaw muscles, due to its deep placement, the action of the superior belly of the lateral pterygoid (SLP) muscle has not been studied widely. The electromyographic (EMG) activities of the superior and inferior bellies of the lateral pterygoid muscles have been shown to be reciprocal in humans’-‘,+ and rhesus monkeys. *-lo The SLP muscle is of particular interest because it attaches to the anterior border of the mandibular… CONTINUE READING
