It is true. It's indeed the working movement (the question is from some released papers, that i have looked through).
To understand it, for example move your mandible to the right side. you should feel how the max lingual cusps slide over the inner side of the Lingual cusp inclines of the mand. teeth until the teeth are "cusp against cusp" (i am only talking about the right side to where you deviated your jaw). so it is indeed the working movement. Hope it helps! Good luck :luck:

yup it's working.

In nonworking the lingual cusp has no contact with the maxillary tooth. They should immediately disclude. Same with protrusive.
In centric relation, there is no contact to begin with.
