Swallowing is a reflex act associated directly with irritation of the root of the tongue, subsequently contraction of the muscles that lift the soft palate and muscles of the tongue, etc. Swallowing in the absence of food or saliva in the mouth is impossible, because there is no irritation of the tongue root. It is easy to verify this by making several swallowing movements in a row: the first movement is easy, since there is always a small amount of saliva in the oral cavity; in the absence of saliva, swallowing movements fail. And evidence of the reflex nature of swallowing are experiments in which the sensitivity of the pharyngeal mucosa is destroyed by smearing it with a solution of cocaine - while swallowing cannot be carried out. Also, swallowing is impossible after cutting the afferent nerves of the pharynx.
