It's most obvious in little kids....especially when they are learning to do stuff like using scissors.
I do it when I am playing some computer games requiring lots of concentration and aim....(I think I am neurologically primitive when playing computer games, or do others do that?)
Mouths and tongues are controlled by the fine motor nerves. I am guessing that a little bit of those nerves fire up when trying hard to control the larger motor nerves. Interestingly, if you have a drug or disease that does damage to motor nerves, the tongue is one of the first to be affected.

Do you swear at the screen ? I swear at the screen.
Only occasionally do I swear at the screen.
I swear at the screen a lot but I think that's because I suck at video games (and I can be a bitter dark soul ... damn you Hermes
, you big Greek god of gaming for making me such a lame gamer!!)
I had a friend who used to punch the screen because it had a mobile base and this would cause it to bow in shame. You can see where this is going....he hit it too hard one day..stitches in his hand and down many denarios to buy a new one. As one who is known for their sensitivity, I laughed till my sides hurt. But I have never hit a computer....or woman...or rabbit.
I am not talking about moving the mouth to swear!!!
I am talking about moving it unconsciously as one is doing stuff!
Yeah, tsarstepan, you are either with the bunny or against it. Shame on you !! You still like me though, dont you, ms wabbitt ??

If you are lame, aren't you more of an Hephaestus?
Have you ever applied mascara with a closed mouth? It's virtually impossible
I seldom wear it...I'll have a notice next time.
And with eye-liner.
Here's a dumb thing: I can't hear on the telephone in the dark!
Well, I do not open my mouth, nor move it, for the application of mascara, eye-liner...and barely for lipstick.
It's just a Luxor thing!
Dlowan, I have a book suggestion for you. It answers questions like yours (and: why coffee rings have a darker stain on the outside edge of the splatter, why toast tends to fall butter-side down, and whether 6 degrees of separation is a valid theory). It's called The Velocity of Honey: And More Science of Everyday Life, by Jay Ingram.
As to your question, it must be neurological, but <shrug>.
Jay Ingram's marvellous.
He has a great show on the Discovery Channel - Daily Planet.
Really!? Maybe I should invest in cable....
Well, dammit...I hoped some bastid HERE might know!
