Scholarcy highlights

  • The present study examined age differences in neural lateralization patterns during swallowing and three related tasks, using functional magnetic resonance imaging
  • As people age the cortical hemispheric control of swallowing seems to start becoming more symmetrical/bilateral, which may indicate neural compensatory mechanisms of the aging brain commonly seen for other motor and cognitive functions
