  • Reflex contraction of the stapedius and tensor tympani muscles was elicited by electrical stimulation of the internal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve. (asha.org)
  • Although not conclusive, the reflex contraction of the middle-ear muscles elicited by internal laryngeal nerve stimulation appeared to be bilateral. (asha.org)
