The aim of this study was to investigate functional heterogeneity within the superior head of the human lateral pterygoid (SHLP) muscle by comparing the functional properties (e.g. firing rates) of single motor units (SMUs) between different arbitrarily defined regions of the SHLP, namely, medial, middle or lateral; origin or insertion; and superior or inferior regions. Jaw movement and electromyographic (EMG) activity was recorded from computed tomography-verified locations within the SHLP of… CONTINUE READING
