Determining of the independent dimensions of jaw motion control; Primary sources of independent variation in jaw movements; Identification of which dimensions are kinematically independent.

    The article presents a study of the speed of movement of the human jaw during mastication and clenching tasks. The equipment used for the study is described, noting the usage of a transducer to measure jaw movement in three planes and the usage of a computer-based data acquisition system for...

    Abstract Clozapine, thioridazine (THIO) and haloperidol were administered for 14 consecutive days, and separate groups of rats were used to study the effects of these drugs on tremulous jaw movements and lever pressing. Rats were observed on day 13 for the ability of the antipsychotic drugs to...

    Abstract Rationale: Previous work has demonstrated that cholinomimetic-induced tremulous jaw movements in rats have temporal and pharmacological characteristics similar to parkinsonian tremor. Objective: This rodent model was used to characterize the putative antiparkinsonian effects of the full...

    Abstract Rationale: Previous work has shown that clozapine suppressed tacrine-induced jaw movements at lower doses than those required for suppression of lever pressing. Objective: The novel atypical antipsychotic olanzapine was assessed in these behavioral tests. Methods: The effect of acute...

    Previous work with open-close movements of the jaw in which food resistance was simulated by an external force has shown that additional activity of the jaw-closing muscles to overcome the force is mainly of sensory origin. When the force was expected, a small anticipatory response was also...

    This article discusses the development of a photoelectric method for collecting data on jaw movements without limiting its range of motion. This machine operates by using photocells to monitor changes in the reflection of light sources surrounding the jaw. An illustration of this apparatus, and...
