To study central and peripheral control mechanisms maintaining rhythmical jaw behaviors, chewing movements with different foods in texture were obtained in the freely behaving rabbit. Jaw movement trajectories and muscle activities (masseter, digastric, thyrohyoid) were recorded and the durations in total cycle, fast closing (FC), slow closing (SC), and opening (OP) phases were obtained as well as the burst duration in the muscles. Durations varied cycle-by-cycle and among the foods, however… CONTINUE READING
