    • ...In this approximately isometric contraction [18, 23, 24], the jaw can tilt [15, 18, 25] about the compressed bolus which separates the teeth by some tenth of millimeters [26]...
    • ...Recent studies suggest that an increase of the working/balancing side activity ratio (W/B ratio) of masseter muscles observed with decreasing jaw gapes in chewing and isometric biting might reflect the required kind of control [7, 26, 36]...
    • ...Likewise, the W/ B ratio proved to increase with decreasing minimum interocclusal distances (MID) reached in sequent chewing strokes [26]...
    • ...Standard precautions as reported previously [26] were taken in order to minimize disturbances of the movement signal...
    • ...MIDs and activity peaks were determined as previously described [26], by manually moving a cursor-delimited window along the time plots...
    • ...These cracking events happen at jaw separations of some millimeters where gape-related control is less effective [26, 36]...
