It is my pleasure to introduce Megan Fucci to the newsletter readers. Megan hails from Hudson, New Hampshire. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication Disorders from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in May 1998 and is currently enrolled in the Graduate Program in Communication Disorders at UNH. As an undergraduate, she presented research on “Patterns of Handedness/Footedness in Children with Communication Disorders” at the ASHA Convention in Boston. She is currently working on a normative study of the evolution of handedness/Footedness with her mentor, Christine Guarino, Assistant Professor of Communication Disorders at UNH.
Quantitative and qualitative analyses of labial muscle activity during the oral preparatory phase of swallowing with conventional drinking implements are limited. Various researchers have reported the importance of labial musculature for extracting food or liquid from utensils for bolus containment, but no objective data has been collected on lip (or perioral) muscle activity while extracting a bolus from drinking implements (i.e., spoon, straw, and cup).
