Influence of motor tasks on the blink rate.
A. Blink rate during the second baseline (being at rest), moving the lips during lollipop sucking, moving jaw muscles during gum chewing and talking without sound production. Error bars represent one SEM. Stars mark significant differences revealed by parametrical statistics. B. Posterior distributions of the effect of each condition on the blink rate. Talking without sound has highest effect on blink rate followed by lip movement during lollipop sucking, jaw movement during gum chewing and baseline. The horizontal error bars above each density represent 95% credible intervals.
