Spontaneous rhythmic masticatory muscle activity (RMMA) during sleep occurs more frequently following spontaneous transient micro-arousal in patients with sleep bruxism (SB) and normal controls. Here, we tested the hypothesis that an experimental arousal would be followed by an increase in RMMA. We identified RMMA on polygraphic recordings taken before and after sensory stimulation to induce experimental arousal in eight SB patients and eight matched normal subjects. The rate of experimental… CONTINUE READING
