This issue of Perspectives addresses the applications of cortical stimulation to swallowing. Dr. Shaheen Hamdy begins the issue by describing approaches to swallowing therapy including neurostimulation and the role of brain plasticity in promoting recovery. Ianessa Humbert follows with a discussion of the role of the primary sensory-motor cortex on swallowing initiation and the effects of aging on swallowing initiation. John Rothwell addresses brain plasticity and whether neurostimulation can improve motor function related to swallowing after stroke. Teresa Pitts, Karen Wheeler-Hegland, and Paul Davenport explain the use of electroencephalography (EEG) to capture data related to swallow initiation. Finally, Rita Bailey summarizes the work of the Division 13 Committee on University and Clinical Collaboration in our Food for Thought article. Thank you to all our authors for sharing their time and for the excellent quality of their contributions.
