As an associate professor of otolaryngology and communication sciences, Mike Lyon, PhD, studies the way cells communicate and work together. Connexins form junctions between cells, allowing for passage of large molecules, as shown above. Different surfaces of the epiglottis, located at the root of the tongue, have different connexins, which are influenced by the substances that come in contact with the epiglottis during swallowing, as well as other factors.
