The method of microneurography was used to record activity in trigeminal cutaneous and mucosal mechanoreceptive afferents during natural orofacial behaviors such as speech gestures, chewing, licking and swallowing. Multi-unit activity and impulses in single nerve fibers were recorded from the infraorbital nerve. It appeared that these mechanoreceptors respond to contact between the lips, air pressures generated for speech sounds, and to the deformation/strain changes of the facial skin and… CONTINUE READING
