Reflex excitation of masticatory muscles induced by algesic chemicals applied to the temporomandibular joint of the cat.

Abstract

Algesic chemicals (7 per cent NaCl, KCl and histamine) applied to this joint of anaesthetized cats evoked reflexes in the ipsilateral anterior digastric, temporalis and genioglossus muscles. Whereas the application of isotonic saline was only briefly and weakly effective, and only consistently so in the genioglossus, a single application of each chemical… (More)
