Different quantities and sizes of peanuts were offered to six human subjects for mastication at two or three experimental sessions during which jaw movements and chewing cycle duration were measured. The amplitude of vertical movement and cycle duration depended on the position of a chew in a sequence of chews (masticatory sequence). Cycle duration also depended on the position of a given masticatory sequence during the first experimental session, the earlier sequences tending to be longer… CONTINUE READING
