Axon excitability testing shows increased IH activity in populations of slow versus fast motor axons of the ratDownload
Despite extensive knowledge of variations in motoneuron (MN) soma and muscle properties across different healthy muscles or motor units, there is comparatively little knowledge about variations in motor axon electrophysiology across different axon groups. Axon excitability testing (AET) is an in...
The effects of a volitional breathing technique on swallowing and respiratory coordination in individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A procedural ProtocolDownload
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a common motor neuron disorder resulting in the deterioration, weakness and eventual atrophy of many of the key muscles of the body required to sustain life. Breathing and swallowing problems are common among...
The effects of a volitional breathing technique on swallowing and respiratory coordination in individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A pilot investigationDownload
Individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) often present with aberrant respiratory-swallowing relationships. In this pilot study, eight individuals with ALS learned a volitional breathing technique designed to promote safe swallowing. The primary focus of the study was to evaluate the...
