EP 30: Neurophysiology of swallowing with Rainer Dziewas

Welcome to a new episode, this time with Prof. Rainer Dziewas, a neurologist and expert in the field of swallowing and swallowing disorders. For this episode, we asked Rainer to explain how swallowing works on a neurophysiological level because we believe that for dysphagia clinicians like us, understanding the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms is essential for a solid assessment and an effective intervention. Get ready for a trip from the brain to the swallowing muscles and join us as we discuss the factors that can affect physiological swallowing. We recorded this episode in person at the annual meeting of the German Society for Dysphagia, so please excuse the background noise in this episode and enjoy listening.
