Bulbar Palsy

Bulbar Palsy
Bulbar Palsy is a motor neuron lesion that affects the lower cranial nerves (9, 10, 11, 12). These nerves are responsible for the control of the movement of muscles that are used for chewing and swallowing, as well as movement of the head and neck. While often confused with Pseudobulbar Palsy because both of these diseases share common symptoms, Pseudobulbar Palsy is caused by damage to the upper motor neurons.
