In somatic gagging, any stimulation of "trigger zones": palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
folds, base of the tongue, palate, uvula and posterior pharyngeal wall induce the gag reflex.
There's evidence that regular vocal exercises may help because it helps tone the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal
Singing lessons are worth a try as there's evidence that vocal exercises may benefit people who snore because it helps tone the soft palate, the tongue, the nasal passages and the palatopharyngeal

These scholars have identified a complex of muscles that considered key to the mechanism of swallowing, they are: higher pharyngeal constrictor, palatopharyngeal
, palatoglossus, posterior intrinsic muscles of the tongue, styloglossus, stylohyoid, genius-hyoid and mylohyoid.
A semilunar fold of mucous membrane passes from the upper aspect of the palatopharyngeal
arch towards the upper pole of tonsil, thus separating it from the base of the uvula.
Sensory inputs can be initiated and sustained either by mucosal receptors of the oropharynx and/or by lingual and/or palatopharyngeal
mechanoreceptors during swallowing (1-3).
Distance between palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
arches height of palatoglossal and palatopharyngeal
arches uvula width uvula length and distance between tonsils were measured.
fusion in a human fetus and its relation to cleft palate formation.
11) In one, the cyst was located just lateral to the tonsil, and in the other just behind the palatopharyngeal
In Group D, the index finger was used to press the PLMA into and advance it around the palatopharyngeal
Effect of articulation therapy on palatopharyngeal
closure, movement of the pharyngeal wall, and tongue posture.
