  Purpose

The aims of this study are in four experimental sessions. The aims are:

  • to characterize the excitability of the cortical pharyngeal area with pharyngeal pressure and electromyograms (EMGs), at rest, in awake healthy subjects;
  • to study its facilitation by inspiration and deglutition; and
  • to study its plasticity by respiration and swallowing.
