    Objectives: In unilateral biting or chewing, the working/balancing-side ratio (W/B-ratio) of masseter activities is inversely proportional to the jaw gape which was interpreted as a neuromuscular strategy to protect occlusion. This suggests that jaw separation is afferently perceived, raising...
