Genioglossal electromyogram during maintained contraction in normal humans


Knowledge of the fatigability of the genioglossus muscle is of interest because this muscle prevents pharyngeal collapse, especially during sleep. In the present investigation, signs of fatigue in the genioglossus muscle were studied by measuring the tongue endurance using a force transducer and electromyographic (EMG) activity of the genioglossus muscle in… (More)
