  • evaluate
  • The objective of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the correlation between left and right masticatory muscle volumes in normal subjects. (nus.edu.sg)
  • Methodology: To evaluate the repeatability of the normalized indexes describing masticatory muscles sEMG, the standardized cutaneous myoelectric activity of Temporalis Anterior and Masseter muscles was recorded twice during a one week interval (Acquisition sessions T1 and T2) in 20 young healthy adults. (stomaeduj.com)
  • In order to evaluate the effects of tonic vestibular reflex and the afferent impulses from the antigravity muscles of the extremities and of the trunk on an excitatory state of the neck, shoulder and back portions during the jaw exercise, 13 healthy adults were electromyographically examined in various body postures.

  • chronic
  • The primary manifestations of TMD-P are pain of a persistent, recurring, or chronic nature in the masticatory muscles, TMJ, or in adjacent structures [ 17 , 18 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • This is critical information because referred muscle pain is a primary cause of all headaches It is the primary source of pain in tension headache and chronic daily headaches but is also implicated as a trigger or exacerbating factor in all headaches. (sleepandhealth.com)
  • Multiple active myofascial trigger points and pressure pain sensitivity maps in the temporalis muscle are related in women with chronic tension type headache. (semanticscholar.org)
  • trigeminal
  • Headches are a Trigeminal Nerve Disorder and the largest input to the trigeminal nervous system are the jaws, the jaw muscles, the jaw joints, the teeth and the periodontal ligaments. (sleepandhealth.com)
  • This control of blood flow to the brain is determined by the trigeminal nervous system and is greatly influenced or controlled by input from the teeth, jaw muscles and related structures. (sleepandhealth.com)
  • bite force
  • Bite force and occlusion are the masticatory performance parameters which are directly linked to the efficiency of food intake and processing. (mpg.de)
  • function
  • Stress may affect the function of all the components of the masticatory system and may ultimately lead to differentiated symptoms and finally to systemic and structural dysfunctions. (hindawi.com)
  • To determine the effect of stress on the masticatory muscles function in young healthy adults. (hindawi.com)
  • All the participants underwent clinical examination according to the Slavicek scheme, questionnaire survey according to Perceived Stress Scale, and assessment of masticatory muscles function in central occlusion. (hindawi.com)
  • The subjects were 10 adult males with normal masticatory function. (nii.ac.jp)
  • Influence
  • In all these functions several muscle groups are involved and coordinated by the central nervous system under the influence of peripheral inputs. (stomaeduj.com)
  • lateral pteryg
  • Trauma or aging of the ligaments that oppose the ac)on of the lateral pterygoid muscle are stretched or torn so when the muscle contracts the ligaments cannot return the disk to its proper position and a resulting pop upon opening and/or closure is seen. (brainscape.com)
  • force
  • Chewing force generation capabilities strongly depend on the mass, architecture and fibre composition of the jaw-moving muscles. (mpg.de)
  • patterns
  • 1) a detailed study of the architecture, fiber types, and the recruitment patterns of the jaw adductor muscles of priamtes. (duke.edu)
  • 1) a detailed study of both the recruitment patterns and the fiber types of the jaw adductor muscles of macaques and baboons. (duke.edu)
  • respectively
  • These responses were thought to be M-wave, a wave corresponding to S-wave in the extremity muscles, one drived from the cortex, and H-wave, respectively. (nii.ac.jp)
  • system
  • 4. These results might suggest that the effects of the jew exercise on the muscles of the neck, shoulder and back portions were modulated by an afferent input from the vestibular system and from antigravity muscles. (nii.ac.jp)
