Abstract

An analysis of the interaction between the tongue and Jacobson's organ was conducted using x-ray cinematography and two experimental procedures. The results failed to support the traditional hypothesis of a direct linkage between the tongue and Jacobson's organ since the tongue was never observed to enter the lumen of Jacobson's organ. Conversely, the results presented provide strong support for the role of elevation of the anterior lingual processes as the mechanism for stimulus transfer.
