Left: Intensity of chills evoked by sound/drums was larger than intensity of chills during music presentation. Middle: sketch illustrating localisation of zygomaticus electrodes. Right: Zygomatic EMG activity was more increased during sounds/drums when chills were reported compared to absent chills.

Left: Figure depicting the swallowing representation masks derived from the DTI of the Brainnetome Atlas (precentral yellow; postcentral: blue) and the DTI of healthy participants (precentral: pink; postcentral: green) from our collective. Both masks show considerable overlay. Right: Patients with dysphagia; association of fractional anisotropy and recovered swallowing performance for both A: postcentral and B: precentral gyrus.
