|Title:||Reflex control of human jaw muscles by periodontal mechanoreceptors / by Jun Yang.|
|School/Discipline:||Dept. of Physiology|
|Abstract:||Describes experiments to determine what factors affect the outcome of the reflex response of the jaw closing muscles to peridontal mechanoreceptive stimulus. The reflex responses of the human masseter were investigated by applying force using different stimulus profiles. It was shown that when the force profile had little or no fast component, the likelehood of eliciting an exitatory peridontal masseteric reflex increased. It is concluded that the shape of the stimulus profile, the location of the stimulating probe and the presence of preload are the main factors that determine the exitatory reflex response of the jaw closing muscles.|
