Training for eating food

For project on training of jaw-movement, we require healthy participants.
In this study we want to investigate the effect of training with biting and chewing exercises on cortical plasticity in people with normal natural teeth.

The volunteers participate in one experimental session of approximately 4 hours duration. During the experimental session the participants will lay down comfortably on an easy chair while Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation will be delivered to the head of the participant before and after a training session (45 min approx.). Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is routine and a painless measurement method with no known side effects.
