  1. NEUROMUSCULAR STRATEGIES FOR HUMAN TONGUE MOVEMENT
    ALAN SOKOLOFF; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..This understanding is essential if we are to develop accurate models of tongue motor control and if we are to design rational interventions for recovery of tongue function in human disease ..
  2. NEUROMUSCULAR STRATEGIES FOR HUMAN TONGUE MOVEMENT
    ALAN SOKOLOFF; Fiscal Year: 2007
