Abstract

A system is described for detecting and recording human chewing behavior. A small transmitter mounted in the side frame of eyeglasses was used to detect muscle movement associated with chewing. The transmitter signal was received and converted to a direct-current voltage which varied at a rate proportional to the S's chewing movement. Exploratory data are presented which suggest that individuals chew at about the same rate per second, but vary in the total number of chews emitted to consume the same amount of foodstuff.
