The EMG activity of the left anterior digastric muscle as well as associated jaw movements were studied in ketamine-anesthetized guinea pigs that had received i.v. infusions of angiotensin II (ANG-II). Rhythmic jaw movements with two distinct movement profiles were associated with ANG-II infusion. One movement profile was typified by vertical jaw opening and closing movements with little or no associated horizontal movement. The second rhythmical jaw movement profile was unlike the first in that jaw closing was accompanied by a significant horizontal deflection of the jaw. Both jaw movement profiles were similar in that little or no horizontal movement occurred during jaw opening. Tongue protrusions were also observed during jaw opening in both cases. The results show that ANG-II induces rhythmic jaw movements in anesthetized guinea pigs. ANG-II-induced jaw movement profiles and digastric muscle EMG activity are similar to those seen after an i.v. injection of apomorphine in the anesthetized guinea pig, and to those associated with lapping in the awake animal.

    ABSTRACT: Sleep bruxism (SB) is reported by 8% of the adult population and is mainly associated with rhythmic masticatory muscle activity (RMMA) characterized by repetitive jaw muscle contractions (3 bursts or more at a frequency of 1 Hz). The consequences of SB may include tooth destruction, jaw pain, headaches, or the limitation of mandibular movement, as well as tooth-grinding sounds that disrupt the sleep of bed partners. SB is probably an extreme manifestation of a masticatory muscle activity occurring during the sleep of most normal subjects, since RMMA is observed in 60% of normal sleepers in the absence of grinding sounds. The pathophysiology of SB is becoming clearer, and there is an abundance of evidence outlining the neurophysiology and neurochemistry of rhythmic jaw movements (RJM) in relation to chewing, swallowing, and breathing. The sleep literature provides much evidence describing the mechanisms involved in the reduction of muscle tone, from sleep onset to the atonia that characterizes rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Several brainstem structures (e.g., reticular pontis oralis, pontis caudalis, parvocellularis) and neurochemicals (e.g., serotonin, dopamine, gamma aminobutyric acid [GABA], noradrenaline) are involved in both the genesis of RJM and the modulation of muscle tone during sleep. It remains unknown why a high percentage of normal subjects present RMMA during sleep and why this activity is three times more frequent and higher in amplitude in SB patients. It is also unclear why RMMA during sleep is characterized by co-activation of both jaw-opening and jaw-closing muscles instead of the alternating jaw-opening and jaw-closing muscle activity pattern typical of chewing. The final section of this review proposes that RMMA during sleep has a role in lubricating the upper alimentary tract and increasing airway patency. The review concludes with an outline of questions for future research.

    ABSTRACT: The electromyograph (EMG) activity of the left anterior digastric and the genioglossus muscles was studied in ketamine-anesthetized guinea pigs under 3 separate jaw movement paradigms. The first paradigm has been previously named spontaneous rhythmic jaw movements. These jaw movements occur 1-2 h after the onset of ketamine anesthesia. After spontaneous rhythmic jaw movements began, a single dose of apomorphine caused a new, second jaw movement paradigm to occur, apomorphine-induced rhythmic jaw movements. The final paradigm, cortically-evoked rhythmic jaw movements, was elicited by electrical stimulation of the masticatory area of the cerebral cortex. Genioglossus EMG activity was complex and highly variable in spontaneous rhythmic jaw movements; however, apomorphine-induced jaw movements were characterized by simultaneously occurring rhythmic EMG bursts of approximately 230 ms duration in both the digastric and genioglossus muscles. In 4 of 5 animals, genioglossus muscle activity onset preceded digastric muscle activity onset by approximately 20 ms. These results support the hypothesis that apomorphine-induced rhythmic jaw movements are an analog of lapping in the awake animal. In cortically-evoked rhythmic jaw movements, both digastric and genioglossus EMG activity were time-locked to the cortical electrical stimulation, with an onset latency of approximately 11 ms for the digastric EMG activity and of 16 ms for the genioglossus EMG activity. These results support the hypothesis that both trigeminal and hypoglossal motoneuron pools are closely coupled in certain coordinative movement patterns.
