... rhythmic mandibular jaw and hyobranchial (tongue) movements. Chewing occurs in chondrichthyans (sharks and rays), actinopterygians (ray-finned fishes), dipnoi (lungfishes) as well as amniotes and involves similarities in the patterns of muscle activity and movement of the feeding apparatus. It has been...

...Roderick A. Suthers; John R. Rothgerber; Kenneth Kragh Jensen ABSTRACT Lingual articulation in humans is one of the primary means of vocal tract resonance filtering that produces the characteristic vowel formants of speech. In songbirds, the function of the tongue in song has not been thoroughly...

... muscles. Several previously unknown features of the laryngeal aditus (glottis) are described and their functional significance in its opening and closure are considered. The tongue plays an essential part in producing and maintaining closure during dives and feeding bouts. Closure is brought about...

... of the tongue in some lizard taxa are thought to be associated with the evolution of vomerolfaction as the main prey detection mode. Moreover, specializations of the tongue are hypothesized to compromise the efficiency of the tongue during transport; thus, driving the evolution of inertial transport. Here we...

... with the movements of each system have been investigated in detail independently, the actual integration between the two systems has received less attention. Recently, the independence of the movements of the jaw and locomotor systems was reported during tongue-based prey capture in an iguanian lizard ( Anolis...

Other elements of this continuous filtration system demonstrate complex mobility. The muscular balaenid tongue is often...

...Stephen M. Deban; Ursula Dicke SUMMARY Salamanders of the genus Hydromantes project their tongues the greatest distance of any amphibian to capture prey, up to 80% of body length or approximately 6 cm in an adult individual. During tongue projection on distant prey, the tongue is shot ballistically...
