One thing I love about the Dysphagia journal, is not only the great research it provides me 4 times a year. I love the abstracts for the upcoming (now past) Dysphagia Research Society (DRS) conference.
This year was no exception for exciting new research to come!
Some titles that I am very excited to look into:
- The Effects of Taste Concentration on SEMG in Swallowing-(Spoiler: High concentraion sour stimuli elicit higher amplitudes and longer durations on SEMG).
- Esophageal Screening as an Adjunct to the Videofluoroscopic Study of Swallowing.
- Sour Bolus Facilitates Spontaneous Swallow in Parkinson’s Disease
- Effects of Age and Sensation on the Anticipatory Stage of Swallowing
- Physiological Factors Related to Aspiration Risk: A Systematic Review
- Pharyngeal Tactile Stimulation Using A Nylon Thread for Enhancing Pharyngeal Sensory Perception
These are just a few of the exciting titles that have caught my attention.
