How does alcohol intake, which worsens obstructive sleep apnoea, alter motor control of the genioglossus muscle, an upper airway dilator, in healthy awake human volunteers, and does alcohol alter genioglossus muscle afterdischarge? What is the main finding and its importance? Alcohol consumption had a very minor effect on the activity of the genioglossus in healthy young individuals studied during wakefulness and did not alter afterdischarge, leaving open the possibility that alcohol worsens obstructive sleep apnoea via other mechanisms.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/31885||DOI:||10.1113/EP090580||ORCID:||0000-0001-8561-9766||Journal:||Experimental Physiology||PubMed URL:||36533973||ISSN:||1469-445X||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||ethanol
