Brainstem orosensorimotor mechanisms and the neural control of ingestive behaviour
This chapter examines neural control and the role of brainstem orosensorimotor mechanisms in ingestive behaviour. It describes the afferent and efferent pathways and brainstem nuclear structures of the orosensorimotor system and the brainstem substrates for orosensorimotor modulation. It also highlights the relation between oromotor behaviours and the sensory control of ingestion and between orosensory deafferentation and ingestive behaviour in the rat.
