Expression of Mash1 in basal cells of rat circumvallate taste buds is dependent upon gustatory innervation. (1/1447)

Mash1, a mammalian homologue of the Drosophila achaete-scute proneural gene complex, plays an essential role in differentiation of subsets of peripheral neurons. In this study, using RT-PCR and in situ RT-PCR, we investigated if Mash1 gene expression occurs in rat taste buds. Further, we examined dynamics of Mash1 expression in the process of degeneration and regeneration in denervated rat taste buds. In rat tongue epithelium, Mash1 gene expression is confined to circumvallate, foliate, and fungiform papilla epithelia that include taste buds. In taste buds, Mash1-expressing cells are round cells in the basal compartment. In contrast, the mature taste bud cells do not express the Mash1 gene. Denervation and regeneration experiments show that the expression of Mash1 requires gustatory innervation. We conclude that Mash1 is expressed in cells of the taste bud lineage, and that the expression of Mash1 in rat taste buds is dependent upon gustatory innervation.  (+info)

Cephalometric abnormalities in non-obese and obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. (2/1447)

The aim of this work was to comprehensively evaluate the cephalometric features in Japanese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and to elucidate the relationship between cephalometric variables and severity of apnoea. Forty-eight cephalometric variables were measured in 37 healthy males and 114 male OSA patients, who were classed into 54 non-obese (body mass index (BMI) <27 kg x m(-2), apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI)=25.3+/-16.1 events x h(-1)) and 60 obese (BMI > or = 27 kg x m(-2), AHI=45.6+/-28.0 events h(-1)) groups. Diagnostic polysomnography was carried out in all of the OSA patients and in 19 of the normal controls. The non-obese OSA patients showed several cephalometric defects compared with their BMI-matched normal controls: 1) decreased facial A-P distance at cranial base, maxilla and mandible levels and decreased bony pharynx width; 2) enlarged tongue and inferior shift of the tongue volume; 3) enlarged soft palate; 4) inferiorly positioned hyoid bone; and 5) decreased upper airway width at four different levels. More extensive and severe soft tissue abnormalities with a few defects in craniofacial bony structures were found in the obese OSA group. For the non-obese OSA group, the stepwise regression model on AHI was significant with two bony structure variables as determinants: anterior cranial base length (S-N) and mandibular length (Me-Go). Although the regression model retained only linear distance between anterior vertebra and hyoid bone (H-VL) as an explainable determinant for AHI in the obese OSA group, H-VL was significantly correlated with soft tissue measurements such as overall tongue area (Ton), inferior tongue area (Ton2) and pharyngeal airway length (PNS-V). In conclusion, Japanese obstructive sleep apnoea patients have a series of cephalometric abnormalities similar to those described in Caucasian patients, and that the aetiology of obstructive sleep apnoea in obese patients may be different from that in non-obese patients. In obese patients, upper airway soft tissue enlargement may play a more important role in the development of obstructive sleep apnoea, whereas in non-obese patients, bony structure discrepancies may be the dominant contributing factors for obstructive sleep apnoea.  (+info)

Morphology and mechanics of tongue movement in the African pig-nosed frog Hemisus marmoratum: a muscular hydrostatic model. (3/1447)

The goal of this study was to investigate morphological adaptations associated with hydrostatic elongation of the tongue during feeding in the African pig-nosed frog Hemisus marmoratum. Whereas previous studies had suggested that the tongue of H. marmoratum elongates hydraulically, the anatomical observations reported here favour a muscular hydrostatic mechanism of tongue elongation. H. marmoratum possesses a previously undescribed compartment of the m. genioglossus (m. genioglossus dorsoventralis), which is intrinsic to the tongue and whose muscle fibres are oriented perpendicular to the long axis of the tongue. On the basis of the arrangement and orientation of muscle fibres in the m. genioglossus and m. hyoglossus, we propose a muscular hydrostatic model of tongue movement in which contraction of the m. genioglossus dorsoventralis, together with unfolding of the intrinsic musculature of the tongue, results in a doubling in tongue length. Electron micrographs of sarcomeres from resting and elongated tongues show that no special adaptations of the sarcomeres are necessary to accommodate the observed doubling in tongue length during feeding. Rather, the sarcomeres of the m. genioglossus longitudinalis are strikingly similar to those of anuran limb muscles. The ability to elongate the tongue hydrostatically, conferred by the presence of the m. genioglossus dorsoventralis, is associated with the appearance of several novel aspects of feeding behaviour in H. marmoratum. These include the ability to protract the tongue slowly, thereby increasing capture success, and the ability to aim the tongue in azimuth and elevation relative to the head. Compared with other frogs, the muscular hydrostatic system of H. marmoratum allows more precise, localized and diverse tongue movements. This may explain why the m. genioglossus of H. marmoratum is composed of a larger number of motor units than that of other frogs.  (+info)

Immunofluorescence detection of ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) proteins with their carboxyl-terminal threonine phosphorylated in cultured cells and tissues. (4/1447)

Ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) proteins are thought to play an important role in organizing cortical actin-based cytoskeletons through cross-linkage of actin filaments with integral membrane proteins. Recent in vitro biochemical studies have revealed that ERM proteins phosphorylated on their COOH-terminal threonine residue (CPERMs) are active in their cross-linking activity, but this has not yet been evaluated in vivo. To immunofluorescently visualize CPERMs in cultured cells as well as tissues using a mAb specific for CPERMs, we developed a new fixation protocol using trichloroacetic acid (TCA) as a fixative. Immunoblotting analyses in combination with immunofluorescence microscopy showed that TCA effectively inactivated soluble phosphatases, which maintained the phosphorylation level of CPERMs during sample processing for immunofluorescence staining. Immunofluorescence microscopy with TCA-fixed samples revealed that CPERMs were exclusively associated with plasma membranes in a variety of cells and tissues, whereas total ERM proteins were distributed in both the cytoplasm and plasma membranes. Furthermore, the amounts of CPERMs were shown to be regulated in a cell and tissue type-dependent manner. These findings favored the notion that phosphorylation of the COOH-terminal threonine plays a key role in the regulation of the cross-linking activity of ERM proteins in vivo.  (+info)

Interarticulator programming in VCV sequences: lip and tongue movements. (5/1447)

This study examined the temporal phasing of tongue and lip movements in vowel-consonant-vowel sequences where the consonant is a bilabial stop consonant /p, b/ and the vowels one of /i, a, u/; only asymmetrical vowel contexts were included in the analysis. Four subjects participated. Articulatory movements were recorded using a magnetometer system. The onset of the tongue movement from the first to the second vowel almost always occurred before the oral closure. Most of the tongue movement trajectory from the first to the second vowel took place during the oral closure for the stop. For all subjects, the onset of the tongue movement occurred earlier with respect to the onset of the lip closing movement as the tongue movement trajectory increased. The influence of consonant voicing and vowel context on interarticulator timing and tongue movement kinematics varied across subjects. Overall, the results are compatible with the hypothesis that there is a temporal window before the oral closure for the stop during which the tongue movement can start. A very early onset of the tongue movement relative to the stop closure together with an extensive movement before the closure would most likely produce an extra vowel sound before the closure.  (+info)

Assessment of the effects of endothelin-1 and magnesium sulphate on regional blood flows in conscious rats, by the coloured microsphere reference technique. (6/1447)

There is evidence to suggest that magnesium (Mg2+) is beneficial in the treatment of a number of conditions, including pre-eclampsia and acute myocardial infarction. The mode of action of Mg2+ in these conditions is not clear, although the vasodilator properties of Mg2+ are well documented both in vitro and in vivo. Previously, we demonstrated that i.v. infusion of magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) alone, or in the presence of vasoconstrictors, caused increases in flow and conductance in the common carotid, internal carotid and hindquarters vascular beds, in conscious rats. Therefore, the objective of the present study was to investigate the regional and subregional changes in haemodynamics in response to the vasoconstrictor peptide endothelin-1 (ET-1) and MgSO4 in more detail, using the coloured microsphere reference technique. Infusion of ET-1 and MgSO4 had similar effects on heart rate and mean arterial pressure as in our previous study. Infusion of ET-1 caused a rise in mean arterial pressure and a fall in heart rate, and infusion of MgSO4 returned mean arterial pressure to control levels with no effect on heart rate. The responses to MgSO4 in the presence of ET-1 showed considerable regional heterogeneity with blood flow increasing (e.g. skeletal muscle), decreasing (e.g. stomach) or not changing (e.g. kidney). Of particular interest was the finding that MgSO4 caused increases in flow in the cerebral and coronary vascular beds. This, and our previous studies, have shown that MgSO4 can reverse vasoconstriction in a number of vascular beds, and indicate that this compound may have therapeutic benefit in conditions associated with vasospasm.  (+info)

Hypoglossal nerve injury as a complication of anterior surgery to the upper cervical spine. (7/1447)

Injury to the hypoglossal nerve is a recognised complication after soft tissue surgery in the upper part of the anterior aspect of the neck, e.g. branchial cyst or carotid body tumour excision. However, this complication has been rarely reported following surgery of the upper cervical spine. We report the case of a 35-year-old woman with tuberculosis of C2-3. She underwent corpectomy and fusion from C2 to C5 using iliac crest bone graft, through a left anterior oblique incision. She developed hypoglossal nerve palsy in the immediate postoperative period, with dysphagia and dysarthria. It was thought to be due to traction neurapraxia with possible spontaneous recovery. At 18 months' follow-up, she had a solid fusion and tuberculosis was controlled. The hypoglossal palsy persisted, although with minimal functional disability. The only other reported case of hypoglossal lesion after anterior cervical spine surgery in the literature also failed to recover. It is concluded that hypoglossal nerve palsy following anterior cervical spine surgery is unlikely to recover spontaneously and it should be carefully identified.  (+info)

Glossopharyngeal nerve transection eliminates quinine-stimulated fos-like immunoreactivity in the nucleus of the solitary tract: implications for a functional topography of gustatory nerve input in rats. (8/1447)

The relationship between specific gustatory nerve activity and central patterns of taste-evoked neuronal activation is poorly understood. To address this issue within the first central synaptic relay in the gustatory system, we examined the distribution of neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) activated by the intraoral infusion of quinine using Fos immunohistochemistry in rats with bilateral transection of the chorda tympani (CTX), bilateral transection of the glossopharyngeal nerve (GLX), or combined neurotomy (DBLX). Compared with nonstimulated and water-stimulated controls, quinine evoked significantly more Fos-like-immunoreactive (FLI) neurons across the rostrocaudal extent of the gustatory NST (gNST), especially within its dorsomedial portion (subfield 5). Although the somatosensory aspects of fluid stimulation contributed to the observed increase in FLI neurons, the elevated number and spatial distribution of FLI neurons in response to quinine were remarkably distinguishable from those in response to water. GLX and DBLX produced a dramatic attenuation of quinine-evoked FLI neurons and a shift in their spatial distribution such that their number and pattern were indiscernable from those observed in water-stimulated controls. Although CTX had no effect on the number of quinine-evoked FLI neurons within subfield 5 at intermediate levels of the gNST, it produced intermediate effects elsewhere; yet, the spatial distribution of the quinine-evoked FLI neurons was not altered by CTX. These findings suggest that the GL provides input to all FLI neurons responsive to quinine, however, some degree of convergence with CT input apparently occurs in this subpopulation of neurons. Although the role of these FLI neurons in taste-guided behavioral responses to quinine remains speculative, their possible function in oromotor reflex control is considered.  (+info)

N2 - The influence of systemic hypoxia on the endurance performance of tongue protrudor and retractor muscles was examined in anesthetized, ventilated rats. Tongue protrudor (genioglossus) or retractor (hyoglossus and styloglossus) muscles were activated via medial or lateral XII nerve branch stimulation (0.1-ms pulse; 40 Hz; 330-ms trains; 1 train/s). Maximal evoked potentials (M waves) of genioglossus and hyoglossus were monitored with electromyography. Fatigue tests were performed under normoxic and hypoxic (arterial PO2 = 50 ± 1 Torr) conditions in separate animals. The fatigue index (FI; %initial force) after 5 min of normoxic stimulation was 85 ± 6 and 79 ± 7% for tongue protrudor and retractor muscles, respectively; these values were ...
A large tongue was regarded as a possible cause of mandibular prognathism by Köle in 1965 [13], and on many further occasions. They also found that those subjects with mandibular prognathism showed tongue volumes similar to those of the control group [6]. So the exact role of the tongue in SCIII patients had not been clarified as yet. However, the majority of this data were without accurate quantitative information on tongues volumes.. As the tongue is encased within the oral cavity when at rest, direct measurement of its real dimensions within the oral cavity is difficult. Therefore, various techniques have been developed for evaluating the tongues size in vivo: direct tongue measurements [14], different impression techniques [9] and the fluid displacement method [15] but were unable to measure the interior portion of the tongue. Furthermore, different imaging techniques have been introduced to assess the tongue volume: cephalometrics [16], computed tomography (CT) [17], cone-beam computed ...
The deep lingual artery (or ranine artery) is the terminal portion of the lingual artery after the sublingual artery is given off. As seen in the picture, it travels superiorly in a tortuous course along the under (ventral) surface of the tongue, below the longitudinalis inferior, and above the mucous membrane. It lies on the lateral side of the genioglossus, the main large extrinsic tongue muscle, accompanied by the lingual nerve. However, as seen in the picture, the deep lingual artery passes inferior to the hyoglossus (the cut muscle on the bottom) while the lingual nerve (not pictured) passes superior to it (for a comparison, the hypoglossal nerve, pictured, passes superior to the hyoglossus). At the tip of the tongue, it is said to anastomose with the artery of the opposite side, but this is denied by Hyrtl.[citation needed] In the mouth, these vessels are placed one on either side of the frenulum linguæ. ...
The tongue muscles form two distinct groups - extrinsic muscles, whose fibers arise outside of the tongue and then converge into the substance of the tongue, and intrinsic muscles, whose fibers are completely within the tongue. Both groups develop from the occipital somites at the base of the developing cranium. The ventral motor roots from the brainstem-spinal cord transition enter these somites to form the hypoglossal nerve, which innervates all of the tongue muscles. In general, the extrinsic muscles modify the position of the tongue, while the intrinsic muscles modify its shape. Tongue muscles do not act in isolation, but in varied combinations to produce the wide array of intricate tongue motions. These motions are essential for the acquisition, manipulation, and swallowing of food, and also play important roles in molding the vocal sounds, produced by the larynx, into the words we speak ...

Note: there are two types of tongue tie. The one you probably think of, when the tongue is connected to the bottom of the mouth all the way to the tip, is an anterior tongue tie. A posterior tongue tie is tied further back, where its difficult to see and diagnose. A tie restricts the movement of the tongue and makes breastfeeding difficult and painful; posterior ties restrict the motion of the middle and back of the tongue, essential to the tongues wave action and suction. Back in the day, when everyone breastfed, tongue ties were cut by midwives as soon as they were noticed. When the country moved to so much bottle feeding, doctors stopped clipping tongue ties. Its only very recently that there has been a resurgence of evidence that tongue clipping is a quick, easy way to improve a breastfeeding relationship thats failing because of a tie ...
The position of the tongue is very important. The tongue is a powerful muscle that can change the shape of your face and teeth, and the way you talk and breathe.. To have the correct facial feature, the tongue needs to be in the right position. The correct posture for the tongue is when your lips are touching each other (without straining); your tongue is relaxed along the palate, with the rear end of the tongue pulled back and the tip of the tongue resting behind the top front teeth (not pushing it).. If the tongue is not placed like this and is putting pressure on the bottom part of the mouth, the maxilla- upper jaw bone- changes structure, resulting in a long and narrow shaped face. The lack of pressure from the tongue pushes the cheeks inside and cause the teeth to crowd.. Other than this, the position of the tongue matters because it can cause breathing problems, including sleep apnea.. The short lingual frenum leads to a restricted use of the tongue and a lower placement of it in the ...
A sore tongue is usually a symptom of irritation or inflammation of the surface or deep tissue of the tongue. The tongue is one of the several parts of the mouth cavity and any disease that affects the tongue may also involve the other structures like the lips, gum, teeth, inner cheek lining, palate and back of the throat. However, there are cases where the soreness of the tongue occurs on its own without involving the other structures of the mouth cavity, or where the soreness is most severe in the tongue. Soreness can also occur in the absence of any disease of the tissue of the tongue. This may be related to nerve pain - either irritation of the nerve or referred pain from surrounding structures with a common nerve supply.. A sore tongue is a symptom of some underlying disease and not a condition on its own. It is important to understand the basic structure and different parts of the tongue in order to identify the location of the soreness and other tongue symptoms that may be present.. ...
Motor symptoms in Huntingtons Disease (HD) are commonly assessed by the Unified Huntingtons Disease Rating Scale-Total Motor Score (UHDRS-TMS). However, the UHDRS-TMS is limited by interrater variability, its categorical nature, and insensitivity in premanifest subjects. More objective and quantitative measures of motor phenotype may complement the use of the UHDRS-TMS as outcome measure and increase the power and sensitivity of clinical trials. Deficits in tongue protrusion are well acknowledged in HD and constitute a subitem of the UHDRS-TMS. We, therefore, investigated whether objective and quantitative assessment of tongue protrusion forces (TPF) provides measures that (1) correlate to the severity of motor phenotype detected in the UHDRS-TMS in symptomatic HD, (2) detect a motor phenotype in premanifest HD gene-carriers, and (3) exhibit a correlation to the genotype as assessed by a disease burden score (based on CAG-repeat length and age). Using a precalibrated force transducer, the ...
We examined changes in the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts by means of immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization in normal conditions, wound healing and carcinogenesis using hamster tongue epithelium, in which differentiation, migration and growth of keratinocytes takes place physiologically and pathologically. In normal hamster tongue epithelium, immunofluorescent staining showed that Cx26 and Cx43 proteins were localized differently during differentiation of keratinocytes, but in in situ hybridization, the localization of Cx26 and Cx43 transcripts overlapped considerably, suggesting that the different localization of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins in squamous epithelium is largely regulated at post-transcriptional levels. During wound healing, the expression and localization of connexin proteins and transcripts were changed drastically. Shortly (6 h) after injury the expression of Cx26 and Cx43 proteins decreased at wound edges, but by 1-3 days after injury the ...

The muscle fibers are heavily supplied with nerves, so it can manipulate food in the mouth and place it between the teeth for chewing - without being bitten in the process. The tongue also aids in the formation of sounds of speech and coordinates its movements to aid in swallowing.. Although the tongue may seen to be floating freely in the floor of the mouth, it is actually anchored in all directions by the four extrinsic muscle sets, which work together to move the tongue in virtually any direction. The movements they produce, however, are pretty coarse, and fine shape changes are the province of the intrinsic tongue muscles.. The extrinsic muscles are arranged in four groups. Contraction of one set of these muscles (on either side) makes the tongue stick out as its whole foundation is pulled forward. Another set passes from the side of the tongue down to one arm of the wishbone-shaped ...
What are the most common tongue piercing problems?. To pierce a tongue, the body piercer must first hold it steady with a clamp. Next, a hollowed, pointed metal needle is driven through the tongue. Finally, the piercer attaches the tongue bar to the bottom end of the needle, and then drags it upwards through the tongue. Two metal screw-on balls are then used to secure the tongue bar.. Most commonly, severe pain and swelling are experienced for several days after the piercing episode. Moreover, the new holes in the tongue are especially infection-prone, because the oral cavity is home to many bacteria colonies. In the medium term, saliva production may increase as the body responds to a completely unnatural entity in the mouth.. Are there long-term problems associated with tongue piercing?.

Tongue Diagnosis. The tongue is the organ of taste and speech. Size, shape, contour, surface, margins, and color are the characteristics one can observe on the tongue. A pale tongue may indicate an anemic condition or lack of blood in the body. An yellowish tongue may suggest that excess bile present in the gallbladder or a possible liver disorder. A blue tongue is normally an indication of problems with the heart. Different areas of the tongue corresponds to different organs of the body. Hence by correlating the location of the blemishes on the tongue, the Ayurvedic practitioner can determine which organs of the body are out of balance.
The ancient art of tongue diagnosis also describes quite characteristic patterns that can reveal the functional status of respective internal organs merely by observing the surface of the tongue. The tongue is the mirror of the viscera.. A discoloration and /or sensitivity of a particular area of the tongue indicates a disorder in the organ corresponding to that area. A whitish tongue indicates a kapha derangement and mucus accumulation; a red or yellow-green tongue indicates a pitta derangement; and a black to brown coloration indicates a vata derangement. A dehydrated tongue is symptomatic of a decrease in the rasa dhatu (plasma), while a pale tongue indicates a decrease in the rakta dhatu (red blood cells).. The front one-third of the tongue relates to the lungs, heart, chest, and neck. Froth in the middle of this area is often a sign of low lung energy with damp and cold lungs and may translate as a cold, bronchitis, asthma, or respiratory allergy. If there is a small depression in the heart ...

Eight healthy men were asked to ingest liquids, and sample foods of different gel consistencies and volumes, as usual. Tongue pressure against the hard palate was recorded at five points, and bolus flow was recorded using videoendoscopic images. The number of squeezes increased as gel consistency and volume increased. The integrated magnitude of tongue pressure during squeezing increased with increasing gel consistency. Bolus propulsion into the pharynx was affected by bolus characteristics, and location of the bolus head at the onset of pharyngeal swallowing was not related to squeezing behavior. The trigger point at which ...
The tongue is a muscular hydrostat that forms part of the floor of the oral cavity. The left and right sides of the tongue are separated by a vertical section of fibrous tissue known as the lingual septum. This division is along the length of the tongue save for the very back of the pharyngeal part and is visible as a groove called the median sulcus. The human tongue is divided into anterior and posterior parts by the terminal sulcus which is a V-shaped groove. The apex of the terminal sulcus is marked by a blind foramen, the foramen cecum, which is a remnant of the median thyroid diverticulum in early embryonic development. The anterior oral part is the visible part situated at the front and makes up roughly two-thirds the length of the tongue. The posterior pharyngeal part is the part closest to the throat, roughly one-third of its length. These parts differ in terms of their embryological development and nerve supply. The anterior tongue is, at its apex (or tip), thin and narrow, it is ...
This can indicate a yeast infection. Our tongue normally has an amount of naturally-occurring bacteria and yeast.

After her controversial VMA performance, Miley Cyrus has constantly been in the headlines with her antics and her favourite pose for the paparazzi is currently to stick her tongue out; however, this has led some experts and music industry colleagues to question whether the appearance of Mileys tongue indicates some health problems. Singing legend Cher recently voiced her opinion, saying Chick, dont stick out your tongue if its coated.. The co-founder of victoriahealth.com Shabir Daya also weighed in on the issue, commenting that your tongue is a window into whats happening in your body; colour, coating, and cracks are all indicators of the state of your health.. Miley might not think sticking her tongue out reveals much about her health and eating habits, but Daya added that a healthy tongue has a thin, white and moist coating and any deviation from this indicates possible problems. He added that small protrusions in the tongue can harbour food allowing bacteria and fungi to thrive ...

I am an IBCLC and I did not realize I was tongue tied until I was 67 years old as I was putting together the information on adult tongue ties. I had my tongue and lower lip tie released. I am glad I did. In my case I went to Dr. Stacy V. Cole in Fort Worth, TX. I urge every parent who has a tongue tied baby to have the trusted provider also take a look at their lips/tongue. If you can have it released at the same visit as the child, even better! I can say the laser release was less painful than having bone grafts, implants, root canals, and extractions and filling that I have had because of the tongue and lip ties. The constant ear infections I had as a child until I finally lost my tonsils and adenoids were very uncomfortable too. I remember the years of ear infections and ear aches and tooth aches, common things for tongue tied people. Thankfully I have not had TMJ, teeth grinding, or headaches, and these are the tip of the iceberg ...
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), pressure and noise measurements are used to study the effect of modifications to tongue and impeller geometries on the flow structure and resulting noise in a centrifugal pump. It is demonstrated that the primary sources of noise are associated with interactions of the non-uniform outflux from the impeller (jet/wake phenomenon) with the tongue. Consequently, significant reduction of noise is achieved by increasing the gap between the tongue and the impeller up to about 20% of the impeller radius. Further increase in the gap affects the performance adversely with minimal impact on the noise level. When the gap is narrow, the primary sources of noise are impingement of the wake on the tip of the tongue, and tongue oscillations when the pressure difference across it is high. At about 20% gap, the entire wake and its associated vorticity trains miss the tongue, and the only (quite weak) effect of nonuniform outflux is the impingement of the jet on the tongue. An ...

The lamina propria of the tongue extends between the lingual muscle fasciculi and contains the lingual glands of mucous, serous, and mixed types, small blood vessels, and nerves. The parasympathetic preganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the brain stem; the postganglionic neuron cell bodies are in the peripheral parasympathetic ganglia, which are associated with certain cranial nerves and innervate the viscera, glands, blood vessels, and smooth muscles. Small subsidiary ganglia occur near these ganglia (Baumann and Gajisin, 1975). The existence of nerve ganglia, within the musculature of the mammalian tongue was known (Barker, 1899). The ganglia were found along deeply placed nerve bundles in the tongue of the cat, rabbit, rat, and hedgehog; some were located close to terminal branches of the hypoglossal nerve (Gerne and Garwan, 1952). Groups of nerve cells were found in the tongue musculature of cat, lamb, monkey, and man; larger ganglia were also found on the chordalingual; and ...

Flickers have a sticky tongue with a barb at the tip-when a flicker probes the subterranean tunnels of an anthill, a dozen or more ants may adhere to the surface each time the bird pulls in its tongue thanks to the stickiness. But flickers do not live by ants alone. When one hears an insect in the wood of a tree, it can hammer with its bill to make a hole down to the bug, and not have to widen the hole at all-once it exposes the tasty morsel, it can pull back its head and stick in just the thin little tongue to grab the grub and pull it in. Without that extrusive tongue, it would have to make the hole significantly larger in order to probe it with the bill open like a forceps. The tongue allows it to save time and get a higher percentage of food items, since every minute spent hacking into a tree provides more opportunities for a dangerous situation to force the woodpecker to fly off without the meal. Ive never taken a photo of a woodpeckers tongue fully extended, but have a few with the ...

Transcript. Do you have a fat tongue?. We know thats a strange question.. But researchers say if youre one of the 1 billion people globally who snore, choke, gasp or stop breathing during the night, your tongue could be a key reason.. A new study published Friday found a connection between having a fat tongue and sleep apnea.. Researchers studied 67 obese patients with obstructive sleep apnea and measured how a 10% weight loss could affect their upper airways.. They also found that patients could reduce their tongue size by losing overall body fat and that improved sleep apnea scores by more than 30%.. But researchers admit more studies need to be conducted because there are many people who suffer sleep apnea who are not overweight.. That means something else could be at play.. You can read more about the study in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.. The Closed Caption version of this video can be found here: https://sign1news.com/.

Fig. 1. Schematic dorso-ventral representation of the tongue of Python molurus and its extrinsic muscles. (A) Abbreviations: cbr, ceratobranchial; m, mandible; dsh, distal tongue ensheathing; ggl, m. genioglossus; hgl, m. hyoglossus; psh, proximal tongue ensheathing; sh, tongue sheet. The dental bone forms the local coordinate system of the head. Although the head is highly deformable during feeding, the lower jaws do not deform during tongue flicking. The position of the ceratobranchials is assumed to be fixed to the skull during tongue flicking (e.g. Bels et al., 1994). The mm. genioglossi and the mm. hyoglossi are able to protract and retract the tongue relative to the mandibles and ceratobranchials. Proximally on the tongue, the mm. hyoglossi are ensheathed. This tubular tongue sheet encloses the tongue distally up to the tongue tips, inverts into itself and connects to the tongue at the distal tongue ensheathing (McDowell, 1972). The outer tongue sheet is connected to the muscles and ...
Conditions of the Tongue Hairy Tongue Hairy tongue is a benign change of the top surface of the tongue that is characterized by elongation of the many small nodules called papillae. It gets is name because the papillae resemble stubby hairs. The papillae can become stained from coffee, tea, colored soda, or bacteria. The cause is unknown but it is usually seen during antibiotic use, in smokers, in persons using stomach antacids, or in hospitalized and/or debilitated patients. Usually it is asymptomatic but may produce bad breath or cause a burning sensation. Treatment is to scrape the tongue, which will remove the papilla but the condition can recur. Fissured Tongue Fissured Tongue is a condition in which cracks or fissures are observed on the surface of the tongue. Food debris and some bacteria colonies may form in the fissures but this is almost always a condition with no symptoms. No treatment is necessary once it is properly diagnosed.

I have already mentioned that there are only three places in the Bible where people spoke in tongues: Acts 2:1-11; 10:44-46; 19:1-6.. The central and most important Bible passage on the subject of tongues is found in Acts 2:1-11. First, it is important because it is the first time tongues are discussed in the New Testament. Second, it is important because speaking in tongues was on a larger scale in Acts 2 than in either of the other cases mentioned. Third, it is the most important passage because this is the only instance where we can be absolutely sure that speaking in tongues was a miraculous gift.. Acts 2:4 states: And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.. In Acts 10 and 19 the Bible simply says they spake with tongues. There is no hint that speaking in tongues in Acts 10 or 19 was a supernatural gift. Only in Acts 2:4 does the Bible say as the Spirit gave them utterance.. Now, what was the motive behind this ...
Tongue cancer is still one of the leading causes of mortality around the world. Recently, the ubiquitin system has been established as a critical modulator of tumors. In order to find the oral cancer related E3 ubiquitin ligases, we screened the human E3 ubiquitin ligase library and found that RING finger protein 139 (RNF139) regulated the biological behavior of tongue cancer cells. MTT assay was used to analyze the cell viability changes of tongue cancer SCC9 and SCC25 cells caused by RNF139. The invasion ability of SCC9 and SCC25 cells with or without the knockdown of RNF139 was evaluated through transwell assay. The immunoblotting was recruited to determine the expression level of RNF139 in human tongue cancer tissues and para-carcinoma tissues. The effect of RNF139 on tumorigenicity of tongue cancer cells was analyzed by xenograft model on immunodeficient Balb/c nude mice. Overexpression of RNF139 inhibits the viability of tongue cancer cells since day 2. The colony formation ability of SCC9 and
A 69-year-old woman presented with a 4-year history of dysphagia, dysarthria, and muscle wasting of the left half of her tongue. There were no other orofacial symptoms. The patient had undergone left marginal resection of the mandible in combination with supraomohyoid neck dissection 6. Years earlier for a malignant tumor of the left mandible. On physical examination, the left half of the tongue was atrophied and deviated to the left on protrusion (Figure 1). A computed tomographic scan showed low density with atrophy of the left side of the tongue indicating the development of fatty infiltration (Figure 2).. There was no cervical lymphadenopathy. Positron emission computed tomographic scanning confirmed no tumor recurrence in the neck. Since the hypoglossal nerve (twelfth cranial nerve) supplies motor innervation to the muscles of the tongue, denervation caused by the damage to the hypoglossal nerve is manifest as hemiatrophy of the tongue ...

The taste centers are in the cortex and in the thalamus of the brain. The organ of taste is the tongue. The surface of the tongue is covered with thousands of tiny fronds or papillae, which give it a velvety sheen. The taste buds, the primary organs of taste, are found within these papillae. There are four type of papillae-filiform, fungiform, foliate and vallate. Filiform and fungiform papillae are found on the front half of the tongue, and foliate papillae at the back. Filiform are threadlike in shape and more numerous than the mushroom-shaped fungiform type. Vallate papillae form a V across the back of the tongue. The base of the tongue is devoid of papillae, but is covered with nodules of lymphoid tissue, which make up the lingual tonsil. A taste bud consists of taste cells, with hairs that project into the moats surrounding the papillae, supporting cells and nerves. The salivary glands are connected by nerves to the taste buds. Stimulation of the taste buds stimulates the salivary glands to ...

In the current study, diabetic mice exhibited delayed mucosal wound healing compared with normoglycemic mice when small mucosal wounds were created on the dorsal tongue surface. One day after wounding, diabetic wound gaps were 71% larger than corresponding wounds in normoglycemic mice. All the wounds in normoglycemic mice had a high degree of healing after 2 days, whereas only 17% of the diabetic mice exhibited this degree of healing. Mechanistically, the impaired healing in diabetic animals can be explained by a large decrease in epithelial migration (83%) and a moderate decrease in proliferation (54%). The in vivo results were supported by in vitro experiments, which demonstrated that high glucose significantly reduced migration of oral epithelial cells by 54% and proliferation by 33%. Thus, diabetes affects healing of mucosal wounds by negatively affecting migration and proliferation. The result contrasts with cutaneous wound healing in which hyperglycemia has a profound effect on migration ...

The rate of young, white women being diagnosed with one type of tongue cancer has more than doubled in 30 years, and researchers arent sure why. The usual suspects, such as tobacco use or human papillomavirus, dont seem to be at work, according to a new study.. The analysis of National Cancer Institute data, which revealed a 111 percent increase in cases of squamous-cell tongue cancer among young white women, found a 43.7 percent increase among young, white men over the same period. Meanwhile, the tongue cancer rates decreased for people of other age groups and ethnicities.. Smoking isnt likely to account for the increase in tongue cancer, because other studies have shown a decrease in tobacco use over the last few decades in the United States, said Dr. Bhisham Chera, an assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.. Ive treated a handful of these patients, and theyre all a higher socioeconomic status, Chera told ...

Using a hierarchical sequence, the four hypotheses (genioglossus activity as well as duty-cycle in protocol 1 and 2) were tested with an α-error of 5% (two-tailed testing) without adjustment for multiple testing.29 The following sequence was defined: first, we tested whether genioglossus electromyogram differs between states. Possible differences in duty-cycle were tested subsequently only if the hypothesis of no difference in genioglossus activity during ketamine anesthesia was rejected. With statistical comparison of both main criteria (genioglossus activity and duty-cycle) we first tested if variables differed in the acute experiments (protocol 1); subsequent tests were performed if, and only if, all previous tests were significant to compare variables in chronically instrumented rats. Statistical comparisons were made by using a mixed linear model (compound symmetry type). We used data from rats studied under protocol 1 and tested for an effect of the independent variables (fixed effects: ...
By using their high tech cameras, the researchers found that the hummingbirds were actually using their tongues to enclose the fluids. Each hummingbird tongue contains two forks that can each curl inward to form two tiny tubes. As the tongue enters the nectar solution, the forks spread open. Over the next 15 milliseconds, those forks close into tubes, entrapping the enclosed liquid and bringing it into the birds mouth. Hummingbirds can perform this act up to 20 times each second. The mechanism of opening and curling into tubes is so energy efficient that even the tongues of dead birds will open and shut when drawn in and out of sugar solutions ...

Overall, the histological studies were consistent with a benign schwannoma with a ...

The masseter muscle can become enlarged in patients who habitually clench or grind (with bruxism) their teeth and even in those who constantly chew gum. This masseteric hypertrophy is asymptomatic and soft; it is usually bilateral but can be unilateral. Even if the hypertrophy is bilateral, asymmetry of the face may still occur due to unequal enlargement of the muscles. This extraoral enlargement may be confused with parotid salivary gland disease, dental infections, and maxillofacial neoplasms. However, no other signs are present except those involved in changes in occlusion intraorally such as pain, and the enlargement corresponds with the outline of the muscle. Most patients seek medical attention because of comments about facial appearance, and this situation may be associated with further pathology of the temporomandibular joint.[6] Finally, the muscle undergoes spasm with malignant hyperthermia as do other skeletal muscles, but this one is easily noted, since it is on the face. ...

An inability to form facial expressions on one side of the face may be the first sign of damage to the nerve of these muscles. Damage to the facial nerve results in facial paralysis of the muscles of facial expression on the involved side. Paralysis is the loss of voluntary muscle action; the facial nerve has become damaged permanently or temporarily. This damage can occur with a stroke, Bell palsy, or parotid salivary gland cancer (malignant neoplasm) because the facial nerve travels through the gland. The parotid gland can also be damaged permanently by surgery or temporarily by trauma. These situations of paralysis not only inhibit facial expression but also seriously impair the patient's ability to speak, either permanently or temporarily.[1] ...
