Electroacupuncture Involved in Motor Cortex and Hypoglossal Neural Control to Improve Voluntary Swallowing of Poststroke Dysphagia Mice
Evaluation of some indexes between the poststroke dysphagia (PSD) model and normal mice. (a) The PSD model process and cerebral infarcts position. (b) Laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI): the brain and lower jaw in normal and the model group. (c) Grip strength test: normal vs. model: . (d) Motor cortex perfusion: , target 1 = noninfarction, target 2 = infarction, , normal vs. model (target 1): , target 2 vs. target 1 (model): . (e) Electromyography (EMG) of mylohyoid and real-time spectrum in normal vs. model group, ,. (f) Swallowing muscle perfusion: ,, normal vs. model: . (g) Swallowing counts: , normal vs. model: . (h) Drink water at different times: , 15 min, 30 min, 45 min, and 60 min. Normal vs. model: . (i) Total water consumption: normal vs. model: .
