Swallowing Pressure Research: Adults Needed

The Department of Neurology at Dell Medical School is conducting a research study investigating pressures generated in your throat during swallowing. This study involves placement of a thin pressure-sensing tube in your nose and throat while you swallow different foods and liquids (e.g., sips of water, bites of pudding). We will also measure muscle activity using sticker sensors placed under your chin and breathing patterns using a thin tube placed in the nostrils and a loose band around your chest. We will apply gentle vibration to the front of your neck.


We are looking for adults 18 – 100 who:

  • Are healthy with no diagnosis of swallowing, gastrointestinal, respiratory, or neurologic disorders and with no history of head or neck surgery


  • Have a diagnosis of a swallowing disorder


Total participation at Dell Medical School (1701 Trinity St.) takes up to 90 minutes, and you will be paid $50 for your time.
