  • Our research activities address fundamental issues oral sensorimotor
    regulation and the effect of functional oral rehabilitation therapy on
    quality of life. We have developed novel techniques to evaluate and study the
    motor physiology and sensory-motor mechanisms involved in the control of
    biting and chewing behaviors in humans. We have also developed novel
    viscoelastic test food that has the potential to evolve as a clinical tool
    for measuring masticatory function. We aim to identify specific indicators of
    good masticatory function and determine developmental milestones in healthy
    children and children with dental malocclusion. We are also investigating if
    compromised or impaired “chewing-swallowing rhythm” could be a risk
    factor for anorexia or bulimia nervosa, and obesity.
    The goal of our research activities is to develop a better understanding of
    the peripheral and central mechanisms governing the biting and chewing
    behaviors in humans and identify early indicators of impaired chewing
    function. Overall, these measures will aid in better diagnosis and effective
    treatment routines in patients with impaired chewing functions.
