  2. The "swallowing cortex" is important in
  3. As the bolus volume increases
  4. As bolus viscosity increases, adequate transit becomes
  5. Nucleus Tractus Solitarius contains
  1. a structures involved in motor control including motor/pre-motor cortex via descending motor pathways
  2. b time-ordered organization of movements, especially the sequential performance of multiple and voluntary movements
  3. c the timing of the tongue base retraction to contact the anteriorly and medially moving pharyngeal walls occurs later in the swallow
  4. d cell bodies of sensory neurons of CN VII, CN IX, CN X
  5. e more reliant on strength and constriction- the pressure generated by the oral tongue, tongue base, and pharyngeal walls increases and muscular activity increases

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. interactions between motor and sensory nuclei
  2. contraction of mylohyoid
  3. the sensory awareness of food
  4. more slowly in response to gravity and compression
  5. the greatest systematic changes in the oropharyngeal swallow

5 True/False questions

  1. Receptor fields send sensory information via their respective fasciculi tocell bodies comprising the Nucleus Tractus Solitarius

          

  2. The ventral regions (NA) require input from thedorsal regions (NTS) in the medulla to complete the swallow

          

  3. The cortex has significant control overthe initiation of swallowing and the level of neuromuscular activity of volitional swallowing

          

  4. The "swallowing cortex" is a discrete area located intime-ordered organization of movements, especially the sequential performance of multiple and voluntary movements

          

  5. Mean deglutition frequency isapproximately 580 swallows per day
