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: .
