Data from: Twist and chew: three dimensional tongue kinematics during chewing in macaque primates

Kara Feilich, J.D. Laurence-Chasen, Courtney Orsbon, Nicholas Gidmark & Callum Ross
Three-dimensional (3D) tongue movements are central to performance of feeding functions by mammals and other tetrapods, but 3D tongue kinematics during feeding are poorly understood. Tongue kinematics were recorded during grape chewing by macaque primates using biplanar videoradiography. Complex shape changes in the tongue during chewing are dominated by a combination of flexion in the tongue’s sagittal planes and roll about its long axis. As hypothesized for humans, in macaques during tongue retraction the middle...
