Division 13 awarded two new investigator grants at the Eleventh Annual Dysphagia Research Society Meeting held in Miami, FL. The grants are available for first time-first authors/presenters. Each award consists of $500 and a one-year paid membership to Division 13. The recipients this year were Danny Nunn and Cynthia Hildner.
Danny Nunn, J. B. Kobler, T. A. Goldsmith, R. E. Hillman, R. E. Bulter, and G. Lof at Massachusetts General Hospital and Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston presented a poster on the “Influence of Bolus Temperature on Continuous Swallowing.“ The primary purpose of the study was to determine whether water temperature influences swallowing during continuous drinking. Previous research has evaluated the effects of cold temperature on swallowing; however, in most of these studies, the volume was limited. In order to fully evaluate the effects of temperature on swallowing, the location and number of thermoreceptors, as well as the rate of axonal transmission are important considerations. As it is important for a large surface area to be exposed to the stimulus for sufficient time in order to evaluate the response reliably and accurately, sequential swallowing may produce more accurate results.
