Event-Related Desynchronization and Corticomuscular Coherence Observed During Volitional Swallow by Electroencephalography Recordings in Humans
TLDR
It is suggested that EEG can detect the desynchronized activity and oscillatory interaction between the cortex and pharyngeal muscles in the bilateral sensorimotor, premotor, and inferior prefrontal areas during volitional swallow in humans.
Power and phase coherence in sensorimotor mu and temporal lobe alpha components during covert and overt syllable production
TLDR
The findings implicate low frequency sensorimotor and posterior temporal phase coherence in the integration of somatosensory and acoustic feedback in overt relative to covert execution with modulations depending on whether the task goal is internal or overt syllable production.
The Application of EEG Mu Rhythm Measures to Neurophysiological Research in Stuttering
TLDR
The suitability of electroencephalographic mu rhythms for addressing stuttering deficits is examined, with findings from speech production and auditory discrimination tasks demonstrating that mu-alpha and mu-beta are highly sensitive to capturing sensorimotor and basal ganglia deficits associated with stuttering with high temporal precision.
Sensorimotor Modulations by Cognitive Processes During Accurate Speech Discrimination: An EEG Investigation of Dorsal Stream Processing
TLDR
The influences of attention and working memory on sensorimotor activity across the dorsal stream during speech discrimination are identified, with set size and signal clarity employed to modulate stimulus predictability and the time course of increased task demands, respectively.
The Effects of Fluency Enhancing Conditions on Sensorimotor Control of Speech in Typically Fluent Speakers: An EEG Mu Rhythm Study
TLDR
Changes in sensorimotor control related feedforward and feedback control in fluency-enhancing speech manipulations can be measured using time-frequency decompositions of EEG μ rhythms in neurotypical speakers.

Temporal dynamics of sensorimotor integration in speech perception and production: independent component analysis of EEG data
TLDR
Independent component analysis was performed on EEG data obtained during perception conditions to identify clusters of μ components common to all conditions and examine real-time event-related spectral perturbations (ERSP) within alpha and beta bands.
Functional mapping of human sensorimotor cortex with electrocorticographic spectral analysis. II. Event-related synchronization in the gamma band.
TLDR
Gamma ERS may provide complementary information about cortical neurophysiology that is useful for mapping brain function in humans, and maps of sensorimotor function inferred from gamma ERS were consistent with maps generated by cortical electrical stimulation for clinical purposes.
Cortical Control Mechanisms in Volitional Swallowing: The Bereitschaftspotential
TLDR
This study demonstrates activation of the supplementary motor cortex preceding the onset of volitional swallowing, however, unlike purely voluntary movements, the volitional pharyngeal swallowing task, as assessed with this methodology, does not appear to recruit the primary motor cortex.
Role of primary sensorimotor cortex and supplementary motor area in volitional swallowing: a movement-related cortical potential study.
TLDR
The preparatory role of the cerebral cortex in swallowing was similar to that in tongue movement, except for earlier activation in swallowing, and postmovement processing of swallowing was lesser than that of tongue movement in face/tongue SMI; probably suggesting that the cerebralortex does not play a significant role in postmovements processing of swallow.
Cortical Regulation During the Early Stage of Initiation of Voluntary Swallowing in Humans
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to reveal the spatiotemporal relations among cortical regions involved in the initiation of voluntary swallowing in humans using magnetoencephalography (MEG), and finger extension movement was also investigated using the same techniques.
Time‐dependent hemispheric shift of the cortical control of volitional swallowing
TLDR
A time‐dependent shift of neural activation from left to right sensorimotor cortex during deglutition with left hemispheric dominance in the early stage of volitional swallowing and right hemispherical dominance during its later part is demonstrated.
Mu and Beta Rhythm Topographies During Motor Imagery and Actual Movements
TLDR
Evidence that motor imagery could play an important role in EEG-based communication is supplied, and it is suggested that mu and beta rhythms might provide independent control signals.
