The effect of stimulation of the vestibular nuclear complex (VN) on the jaw-opening reflex (JOR) was studied in anesthetized rats. The JOR was evoked by electrical stimulation of the inferior alveolar nerve, and was recorded as the electromyographic responses of the anterior belly of the digastric muscle, bilaterally. Conditioning electrical stimulation of… CONTINUE READING
