The anatomy of the mammalian tongue consists of an intricate array of variably aligned and extensively interwoven muscle fibers. As a result, it is particularly difficult to resolve the relationship between the tongue's microscopic anatomy and tissue-scale mechanical function. In order to address this question, we employed a method, diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) with tractography, for displaying the macroscopic orientational properties of the tissue's constituting myofibers. DSI measures… CONTINUE READING
