The mandible is very crucial, especially when chewing, which means that it must be robust, dynamic and endurance. Muscles of mastication help the mandible perform the tasks. The mandible has four muscles, first the medial pterygoid, lateral pterygoid muscle, masseter and lastly the temporalis muscle. The muscles reason for existence is mastication, the process of grinding food into a bolus for easy swallowing (You Tube 2019).
Additionally, it is the first step in digestion, where the surface area for digestive enzymes is increased. Generally, the mandible is the insertion point for themuscles. The mandible is made up of three parts, namely; body, two rami and an angle of the mandible. The rami usually have two distinct appearances due to processes like the coronoid process and the condylar process(You Tube 2019).
Biologically digestion does start in the stomach; instead, it begins in the mouth. The chewing process is distinct from the digestive system, although they are both interrelated. If one chew for one minute, there is a possibility that half the amount of starch is transformed into simple sugars before swallowing (Schrag 2018). Additionally, the matriculation process directly affects the brain system by activating several regions which are very vital for the cognitive procedure, including prefrontal cortex and hippocampus (Kim et al. 2017). More so the chewing process can activate them can be the activation cause for the dopaminergic system that suppress stress that is induced in the ventral hippocampus.
As part of anatomy research, the study will help understand the body functioning and will be of significant impact in my career as it can lead me to professionalism in Radiologist and MRI, Physical therapist or even in Biochemical engineering (Flack 2017). They are all accommodating in giving back to society, especially on the need for taking care of society’s dental system. The best connection attained in the study week was learning the functional connectivity in human chewing(Flack 2017). The anatomy is advantageous to the community, especially in education concerning detail issues. The video that I used stands as a strong pillar in my generation of interest in the area of study.
During my week study, I used reliable sources like YouTube for my research and trusted online websites. Although I got some challenges like time management which I have to rectify in the next week research to improve on my research performance, which means I will be more determined to research on the week’s research work.
