34.7% of the patients reported dysgeusia due to chorda tympani involvement, and the 37.9% of the total was affected by dry eye for the involvement of the greater superficial petrosal nerve.
To elucidate the neural mechanisms of such age-related changes in taste preference and sensitivity, electrophysiological experiments examined taste response characteristics of chorda tympani nerves.
This is supported by the observation of relatively greater alteration in bitter and sour taste sensation than salty and sweet perception with terbinafine in various studies.4,5 Electrophysiological study of chorda tympani nerve in non human primates shows that more sucrose-based and NaCl-based fibres are present than citric acid based and caffeine- based fibres.6
Concretamente han sido los estudios referidos a la dimension politica transnacional los han remarcado tanto la capacidad de agencia y el papel de los migrantes como actores politicos (en sus paises de origen y de destino): Ejemplo de ellos son estudios recientes centrados en la participacion politica transnacional de los migrantes latinos a Europa (Escriva Chorda y Bermudez, 2009; Lafleur, 2011; Ostergaard-Nielsen, 2011).
