Discharge characteristics of laryngeal single motor units during phonation in young and older adults and in persons with parkinson disease. (1/317)

Discharge characteristics of laryngeal single motor units during phonation in young and older adults, and in persons with Parkinson disease. The rate and variability of the firing of single motor units in the laryngeal muscles of young and older nondisordered humans and people with idiopathic Parkinson disease (IPD) were determined during steady phonation and other laryngeal behaviors. Typical firing rates during phonation were approximately 24 s/s. The highest rate observed, during a cough, was 50 s/s. Decreases in the rate and increases in the variability of motor unit firing were observed in the thyroarytenoid muscle of older and IPD male subjects but not female subjects. These gender-specific age-related changes may relate to differential effects of aging on the male and female voice characteristics. The range and typical firing rates of laryngeal motor units were similar to those reported for other human skeletal muscles, so we conclude that human laryngeal muscles are probably no faster, in terms of their contraction speed, than other human skeletal muscles. Interspike interval (ISI) variability during steady phonation was quite low, however, with average CV of approximately 10%, with a range of 5 to 30%. These values appear to be lower than typical values of the CV of firing reported in three studies of limb muscles of humans. We suggest therefore that low ISI variability is a special although not unique property of laryngeal muscles compared with other muscles of the body. This conceivably could be the result of less synaptic "noise" in the laryngeal motoneurons, perhaps as a result of suppression of local reflex inputs to these motoneurons during phonation.  (+info)

The neuromuscular control of birdsong. (2/317)

Birdsong requires complex learned motor skills involving the coordination of respiratory, vocal organ and craniomandibular muscle groups. Recent studies have added to our understanding of how these vocal subsystems function and interact during song production. The respiratory rhythm determines the temporal pattern of song. Sound is produced during expiration and each syllable is typically followed by a small inspiration, except at the highest syllable repetition rates when a pattern of pulsatile expiration is used. Both expiration and inspiration are active processes. The oscine vocal organ, the syrinx, contains two separate sound sources at the cranial end of each bronchus, each with independent motor control. Dorsal syringeal muscles regulate the timing of phonation by adducting the sound-generating labia into the air stream. Ventral syringeal muscles have an important role in determining the fundamental frequency of the sound. Different species use the two sides of their vocal organ in different ways to achieve the particular acoustic properties of their song. Reversible paralysis of the vocal organ during song learning in young birds reveals that motor practice is particularly important in late plastic song around the time of song crystallization in order for normal adult song to develop. Even in adult crystallized song, expiratory muscles use sensory feedback to make compensatory adjustments to perturbations of respiratory pressure. The stereotyped beak movements that accompany song appear to have a role in suppressing harmonics, particularly at low frequencies.  (+info)

Distinct gamma-band evoked responses to speech and non-speech sounds in humans. (3/317)

To understand spoken language, the human brain must have fast mechanisms for the representation and identification of speech sounds. Stimulus-induced synchronization of neural activity at gamma frequencies (20-80 Hz), occurring in humans at 200-300 msec from stimulus onset, has been suggested to be a possible mechanism for neural object representation. Auditory and visual stimuli also evoke an earlier (peak <100 msec) gamma oscillation, but its dependence on high-level stimulus parameters and, thereby, its involvement in object representation has remained unclear. Using whole-scalp magnetoencephalography, we show here that responses evoked by speech and non-speech sounds differed in the gamma-frequency but not in the low-frequency (0.1-20 Hz) band as early as 40-60 msec from stimulus onset. The gamma-band responses to the speech sound peaked earlier in the left than in the right hemisphere, whereas those to the non-speech sound peaked earlier in the right hemisphere. For the speech sound, there was no difference in the response amplitude between the hemispheres at low (20-45 Hz) gamma frequencies, whereas for the non-speech sound, the amplitude was larger in the right hemisphere. These results suggest that evoked gamma-band activity may indeed be sensitive to high-level stimulus properties and may hence reflect the neural representation of speech sounds. Consequently, speech-specific neuronal processing may commence no later than 40-60 msec from stimulus onset, possibly in the form of activation of language-specific memory traces.  (+info)

Somatosensory feedback modulates the respiratory motor program of crystallized birdsong. (4/317)

Birdsong, like human speech, involves rapid, repetitive, or episodic motor patterns requiring precise coordination between respiratory, vocal organ, and vocal tract muscles. The song units or syllables of most adult songbirds exhibit a high degree of acoustic stereotypy that persists for days or months after the elimination of auditory feedback by deafening. Adult song is assumed to depend on central motor programs operating independently from immediate sensory feedback. Nothing is known, however, about the possible role of mechanoreceptive or other somatosensory feedback in the motor control of birdsong. Even in the case of human speech, the question of "how and when sensory information is used in normal speaking conditions...remains unanswered" and controversial [Smith, A. (1992) Crit. Rev. Oral Biol. Med. 3, 233-267]. We report here evidence for somatosensory modulation of ongoing song motor patterns. These patterns include the respiratory muscles that, in both birdsong and speech, provide the power for vocalization. Perturbing respiratory pressure by a brief, irregularly timed injection of air into the cranial thoracic air sac during song elicited a compensatory reduction in the electrical activity of the abdominal expiratory muscles, both in hearing and deafened adult northern cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis). This muscle response was absent or reduced during quiet respiration, suggesting it is specifically linked to phonation. Our findings indicate that somatosensory feedback to expiratory muscles elicits compensatory adjustments that help stabilize, in real time, the subsyringeal pressure against fluctuations caused by changes in posture or physical activity.  (+info)

Control of oral closure in lingual stop consonant production. (5/317)

Previous work has shown that the lips are moving at a high velocity when the oral closure occurs for bilabial stop consonants, resulting in tissue compression and mechanical interactions between the lips. The present experiment recorded tongue movements in four subjects during the production of velar and alveolar stop consonants to examine kinematic events before, during, and after the stop closure. The results show that, similar to the lips, the tongue is often moving at a high velocity at the onset of closure. The tongue movements were more complex, with both horizontal and vertical components. Movement velocity at closure and release were influenced by both the preceding and the following vowel. During the period of oral closure, the tongue moved through a trajectory of usually less than 1 cm; again, the magnitude of the movement was context dependent. Overall, the tongue moved in forward-backward curved paths. The results are compatible with the idea that the tongue is free to move during the closure as long as an airtight seal is maintained. A new interpretation of the curved movement paths of the tongue in speech is also proposed. This interpretation is based on the principle of cost minimization that has been successfully applied in the study of hand movements in reaching.  (+info)

Quantitative analysis of professionally trained versus untrained voices. (6/317)

The aim of this study was to compare healthy trained and untrained voices as well as healthy and dysphonic trained voices in adults using combined voice range profile and aerodynamic tests, to define the normal range limiting values of quantitative voice parameters and to select the most informative quantitative voice parameters for separation between healthy and dysphonic trained voices. Three groups of persons were evaluated. One hundred eighty six healthy volunteers were divided into two groups according to voice training: non-professional speakers group consisted of 106 untrained voices persons (36 males and 70 females) and professional speakers group--of 80 trained voices persons (21 males and 59 females). Clinical group consisted of 103 dysphonic professional speakers (23 males and 80 females) with various voice disorders. Eighteen quantitative voice parameters from combined voice range profile (VRP) test were analyzed: 8 of voice range profile, 8 of speaking voice, overall vocal dysfunction degree and coefficient of sound, and aerodynamic maximum phonation time. Analysis showed that healthy professional speakers demonstrated expanded vocal abilities in comparison to healthy non-professional speakers. Quantitative voice range profile parameters- pitch range, high frequency limit, area of high frequencies and coefficient of sound differed significantly between healthy professional and non-professional voices, and were more informative than speaking voice or aerodynamic parameters in showing the voice training. Logistic stepwise regression revealed that VRP area in high frequencies was sufficient to discriminate between healthy and dysphonic professional speakers for male subjects (overall discrimination accuracy--81.8%) and combination of three quantitative parameters (VRP high frequency limit, maximum voice intensity and slope of speaking curve) for female subjects (overall model discrimination accuracy--75.4%). We concluded that quantitative voice assessment with selected parameters might be useful for evaluation of voice education for healthy professional speakers as well as for detection of vocal dysfunction and evaluation of rehabilitation effect in dysphonic professionals.  (+info)

Vocal dose measures: quantifying accumulated vibration exposure in vocal fold tissues. (7/317)

To measure the exposure to self-induced tissue vibration in speech, three vocal doses were defined and described: distance dose, which accumulates the distance that tissue particles of the vocal folds travel in an oscillatory trajectory; energy dissipation dose, which accumulates the total amount of heat dissipated over a unit volume of vocal fold tissues; and time dose, which accumulates the total phonation time. These doses were compared to a previously used vocal dose measure, the vocal loading index, which accumulates the number of vibration cycles of the vocal folds. Empirical rules for viscosity and vocal fold deformation were used to calculate all the doses from the fundamental frequency (F0) and sound pressure level (SPL) values of speech. Six participants were asked to read in normal, monotone, and exaggerated speech and the doses associated with these vocalizations were calculated. The results showed that large F0 and SPL variations in speech affected the dose measures, suggesting that accumulation of phonation time alone is insufficient. The vibration exposure of the vocal folds in normal speech was related to the industrial limits for hand-transmitted vibration, in which the safe distance dose was derived to be about 500 m. This limit was found rather low for vocalization; it was related to a comparable time dose of about 17 min of continuous vocalization, or about 35 min of continuous reading with normal breathing and unvoiced segments. The voicing pauses in normal speech and dialogue effectively prolong the safe time dose. The derived safety limits for vocalization will likely require refinement based on a more detailed knowledge of the differences in hand and vocal fold tissue morphology and their response to vibrational stress, and on the effect of recovery of the vocal fold tissue during voicing pauses.  (+info)

In reference to phonation larynx fixation: computer graphic record. (8/317)

The vocal apparatus serves phonation. It represents a biocybernetic self-regulating system, disposing of a feedback network of the central nervous system. The larynx is a self-induced vibrating system. The larynx, functioning as the phonation apparatus of the vocal apparatus, is a source of human voice. In every individual its frequency range corresponds to about eight semitones in speech and about two octaves of the so-called chest register in singing, denoted also as a thoracic or modal voice. This is followed by one more octave of the so-called cranial register or falsetto voice. We were interested in changes of the larynx positions at intonation in the fundamental singing registers, both modal and falsetto, in professional male singers. At our disposal were 11 professional male singers. We investigated changes in the position of the laryngeal structures simultaneously with the aid of an X-ray apparatus, the acoustic and mechanical signals registered by means of the B & K 4369 acceleration recorder. It has been found that at phonation with the modal voice a change in the position of the laryngeal structures takes place in two different ways, whereas the larynx movements at falsetto remain the same. It has been suggested that a complex fixation apparatus participates in the phonation larynx movements. Of the same complex character are also the problems connected with the examination of the entire vocal apparatus. For the purpose of compiling the present pieces of knowledge in the field of human voice studies, we have made the most advantageous use of the presently most complex system Authorware for the production of some interactive multimedial programmes on personal computers.  (+info)

Usually, we use the 4-7 cmH2O backpressure level. This is the phonation threshold pressure (PTP) range which is an easy level for vocal fold vibration. We assume that the primary vibration (glottic wave) and secondary vibration (bubbling water) are in a kind of balance in the PTP range. To treat the glottic closure deficiencies, we use the high backpressure (which means between 10-35 cmH2O) in our therapy regimes. The lab research showed us that it is not possible to sustain glottic vibrations over 45 cmH2O. Of course, these numbers are to be considered within personal changes. The water bubbling provides a continuous (DC) backpressure with the water level and an additional vibratory (AC- alternant) backpressure by bubbling. To increase the DC backpressure it is possible to increase the water level, but it is not practical and hard to find a long bottle. The phonation tube should also be elongated. So this was the start for the DC-Valve devising process: Need is the mother of innovation. ...

Previous studies have shown the importance of cricothyroid muscle activation in altering fundamental frequency in the human voice. Other studies have investigated the non-linear properties of vocal fold tissue and the impact of this non-linearity on frequency response. Several physical models of the vocal folds have been made for research purposes. However, all have been isotropic in nature with linear stress-strain properties. The purpose of this study was to create a physical model with non-linear stress-strain properties to investigate the frequency response of the model as cricothyroid muscle activation was simulated (in other words, as the vocal folds were stretched in an anterior-posterior dimension). In this study the physical models of the vocal folds were stretched in 1 mm increments and the fundamental frequency (F0) was recorded at each position. Subglottal pressure was also monitored and phonation threshold pressures were recorded for each adjustment in length and vocal fold tension, because

The ability to provide absolute calibrated measurement of the laryngeal structures during phonation is of paramount importance to voice science and clinical practice. Calibrated three-dimensional measurement could provide essential information for modeling purposes, for studying the developmental aspects of vocal fold vibration, for refining functional voice assessment and treatment outcomes evaluation, and for more accurate staging and grading of laryngeal disease. Recently, a laser-calibrated transnasal fiberoptic endoscope compatible with high-speed videoendoscopy (HSV) and capable of providing three-dimensional measurements was developed. The optical principle employed is to project a grid of 7 × 7 green laser points across the field of view (FOV) at an angle relative to the imaging axis, such that (after calibration) the position of each laser point within the FOV encodes the vertical distance from the tip of the endoscope to the laryngeal tissues. The purpose of this study was to develop ...
Objective voice analysis is of profound importance for daily phoniatric practices, for diagnostics and the therapy of dysphonia both. The Göttingen Hoarseness-diagram (GHD) is considered to be the ultimate benchmark. It requires recording 28 vocals by qualified personnel in ca. 15 minutes time. This study investigates wether the GHD is able to produce valid results for voice quality if, instead of standard protocol, phonations recorded during laryngoscopy and stroboscopy are analyzed (so-called reduced protocol). If this was possible, voice analysis and examination of the larynx could be performed simultaneously thus leading to a reduced expenditure of time and personnel. For this thesis, voice recordings taken during the stroboscopy and laryngoscopy of 213 patients (97 male, 116 female) were analyzed with the GHD. On the same day phonations following the complete GHD-protocol were also recorded and analyzed. The GHD measures the voice´s irregularity and noise component and the results for ...
The cavities of the supra-glottal vocal tract resonate when excited by sound energy. The exact resonance characteristics of the vocal tract are a function of many factors, but the two factors of primary importance are the length of the vocal tract and its shape, that is, the cross sectional area profile from glottis to lips. Resonances in the vocal tract reinforce the sound energy of the source function at particular frequencies. These frequencies are variously called resonant frequencies, poles, or formant frequencies. In the figure on the left, we see the effects of passing a model source function with its dense harmonic structure through a model vocal tract producing an /ae/-like vowel. The top panel in this figure shows the spectrum of the source function. The middle panel in this figure shows the response characteristics of the vocal tract. This is a relatively smooth and continuous function of frequency with peaks at frequencies corresponding to the resonant frequencies of the vocal tract. ...
1 of 2) Examine the interior of the larynx, which is also covered by mucous membrane. Identify an upper fold, the vestibular fold or false vocal cord and a lower fold, the vocal fold or true vocal cord (Figure 32.1 , Figure 32.2 , Figure 32.3). The space between the two folds is the ventricle or sinus of the larynx. Place a probe in the ventricle and determine the depth of the cavity. Mucus, produced by glands within the mucosal lining of the ventricles, lubricates the surface of the vocal folds. Bring the two halves of the larynx together and observe that the vocal folds are more closely apposed than the vestibular folds. When the vocal folds are approximated and air is exhaled from the lungs, the true vocal folds vibrate and thus produce sound. Links and References: ...
Some fundamental questions concerning voice production remain unanswered despite numerous research approaches in various fields of voice science. It is widely believed that high intraglottal pressures may cause organic voice disorders like vocal fold nodules or contact granulomas. This hypothesis seems reasonable but is difficult to prove given the challenges of pressure measurement and of establishing a causative link to disease. In this study we present a method for intraglottal contact pressure measurement in humans with a specially designed subminiature sensor. While implementing the measurement of the contact pressures, videolaryngoscopy is simultaneously used for online-monitoring. The new generation of subminiature sensors now allows us to make pressure measurements along the membranous vocal fold. We demonstrate contact pressure values for 10 healthy female and 10 healthy male subjects as well as for 10 patients with organic voice disorder. A video with endoscopic pictures illustrates ...
Aspiration is defined as entry of a solid or liquid material into the respiratory tract, below the vocal folds, or inhalation of fumes and vapors. Aspiration pneumonia is an infectious process caused by aspirated oropharyngeal flora, while aspiration pneumonitis is caused by a direct chemical insult due to the aspirated material.. Aspiration pneumonitis and pneumonia among hospitalized patients result in increased morbidity, mortality and utilization of resources, with increased costs of care. Early identification of patients at risk for aspiration is crucial to prevent this preventable and often iatrogenic condition.. In general, the most common predisposing factors for aspiration in adults are alcoholism, stroke, neuromuscular disorders, seizures, and loss of consciousness, and these patients are usually cared for in the ICU setting. Furthermore, critically ill patients are also at risk as they are frequently under varying degrees of sedation, especially early in the post extubation period. ...

Speech is created with pulmonary pressure provided by the lungs that generates sound by phonation through the glottis in the larynx that then the air filled with sounds is divided by uvula which the sole cause power of speech.The sound filled air enter on either of the buccal cavity.It circulate and touches the different parts of mouth and vibrate.Pushed out byhe vocal tract into different vowels and consonants.. ...
At birth the vocal folds consist of two parts, a firm cartilaginous portion and a thin pliable membranous portion, which is crucial in speaking and singing. The pitch of the voice is determined by the frequency of vibration of the vocal folds and inversely related to their length. From birth until the onset of puberty the male and female vocal folds remain at the same size. With the onset of puberty, boys experience a progressive decrease in the fundamental pitch of the voice, which is accompanied by a progressive increase in the length of the vocal folds. Under the influence of testosterone, the male vocal folds grow from a mean total length of 17.3 mm in prepuberty to 28.9 mm in adulthood, an increase of 67%. In contrast, female vocal folds grow from 17.3 to 21.4 mm, an increase of 24%.7 The castratos vocal folds would remain at their prepubescent length thus explaining their ability to sing in a pitch range similar to that of an adult soprano. It has been observed that testosterone produces ...

Vocal resonance refers to the vibration created by sound production (phonation) and this is evident throughout the respiratory tract and adjacent structures, similar to breathing sounds. In terms of diagnosing any lung abnormality the vocal resonance over lung tissue may need to be assessed to establish if the loud breathing sounds detected upon ausculation (bronchophony) over the lung is indeed present and whether it is due to any specific pathology. This may also be confirmed by touch (tactile fremitus).. ...

In this study, we focus on the classification of neutral and stressed speech based on a physical model. In order to represent the characteristics of the vocal folds and vocal tract during the process of speech production and to explore the physical parameters involved, we propose a method using the two-mass model. As feature parameters, we focus on stiffness parameters of the vocal folds, vocal tract length, and cross-sectional areas of the vocal tract. The stiffness parameters and the area of the entrance to the vocal tract are extracted from the two-mass model after we fit the model to real data using our proposed algorithm. These parameters are related to the velocity of glottal airflow and acoustic interaction between the vocal folds and the vocal tract and can precisely represent features of speech under stress because they are affected by the speakers psychological state during speech production. In our experiments, the physical features generated using the proposed approach are compared with
Background and Objectives During speech, the vocal folds oscillate at frequencies ranging from 100-200 Hz with amplitudes of a few millimeters. Mechanical stimulation is an essential factor which affects metabolism of human vocal folds. The effect of mechanical vibration on the cellular response in the human vocal fold fibroblasts cells (hVFFs) was evaluated. Materials and Method We created a culture systemic device capable of generating vibratory stimulations at human phonation frequencies. To establish optimal cell culture condition, cellular proliferation and viability assay was examined. Quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction was used to assess extracellular matrix (ECM) related and growth factors expression on response to changes in vibratory frequency and amplitude. Western blot was used to investigate ECM and inflammation-related transcription factor activation and its related cellular signaling transduction pathway. Results The cell viability was stable with vibratory ...
Vocal fold scarring remains one of the greatest therapeutic challenges in laryngology and voice therapy. The loss of superior lamina propria results in a change in the pliability of the vocal folds with changes in glottal configuration, glottal closure, and reduced to absent mucosal wave motion. This results in dysphonia of varying severities including breathiness, roughness, loss of pitch range, and flexibility. The aim of this article is to present a brief review of vocal fold architecture and a discussion of the etiologies of vocal fold scarring. Methods to evaluate vocal fold scarring are presented with examples of findings in laryngoscopic, acoustic, aerodynamic, and perceptual assessments. Medical, surgical, and behavioral treatment for vocal folds scaring including sample therapy tasks are included.. ...
Bilateral vocal fold paralysis (BVFP) is a rare but life-threatening condition mostly caused by iatrogenic damage to the peripheral recurrent laryngeal nerve. Endoscopic enlargement techniques have been the standard treatment for decades. However, prospective studies using internationally accepted phoniatric and respiratory evaluation guidelines are rare. Prospective observational multicenter study. Twelve clinical centers screened 61 patients, of whom 36 were eligible according to the study protocol. Subjects were assessed with specific phoniatric and respiratory tests preoperatively and at 1 and 6 months postoperatively. Important respiratory parameters improved significantly 6 months postoperatively (peak expiratory and expiratory flow), confirming that a glottal enlargement effectively reduced the obstruction. Objective parameters dealing with voice quality worsened significantly (maximum phonation time, voice range profile, hoarseness), whereas subjective voice assessment (VHI-12) did not ...
Voice and speech Speech is a complex process that starts with muscle movement, which involves phonation (voice), respiration (breathing process), and articulation (throat, palate, tongue, lips, and teeth).. These muscle movements are initiated, coordinated, and controlled by the brain, and monitored through hearing and touch.. Voice production, or phonation, is generating and modulating sound as part of the speech process.. Voice is created in the vocal cords (or vocal folds) of the larynx.. The larynx, often referred to as the voice box, is a two-inch long, tube-shaped organ located in the neck at the top of the trachea (windpipe). The cartilage in front of the larynx is sometimes called the Adams apple.. The vocal cords (or vocal folds) are two bands of muscle that form a V shape inside the larynx.. The area of the larynx where the vocal cords are located is called the glottis. The area above the cords is called the supraglottis, and the area below the cords is called the subglottis. The ...
This slide downward in pitch demonstrates how the vocal folds shorten in length to decrease pitch. The light is constant so the edges of the vocal folds blur during phonation. The video frame rate on this digital recording was 30 frames per second and the vocal folds are vibrating at over 200 vibrations per second. A rigid scope was used for the recording. (Strobe in larger version). ...
The larynx, commonly called the voice box, is an organ in the neck of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals (including humans) involved in breathing, sound production, and protecting the trachea against food aspiration. It manipulates pitch and volume. The larynx houses the vocal folds (commonly but improperly termed the vocal cords), which are essential for phonation. The vocal folds are situated just below where the tract of the pharynx splits into the trachea and the esophagus. Sound is generated in the larynx, and that is where pitch and volume are manipulated. The strength of expiration from the lungs also contributes to loudness. Fine manipulation of the larynx is used to generate a source sound with a particular fundamental frequency, or pitch. This source sound is altered as it travels through the vocal tract, configured differently based on the position of the tongue, lips, mouth, and pharynx. The process of altering a source sound as it passes through the filter of the vocal tract ...
Vocal tract area function estimation from three-dimensional (3D) volumetric dataset often involves complex and manual procedures such as oblique slice cutting and image segmentation. We introduce a semi-automatic method for estimating vocal tract area function from 3D Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) datasets. The method was implemented on a custom MATLAB graphical user interface and computes the area function in a user-interactive way. The 3D MRI datasets were acquired with 1.25 mm isotropic resolution during 8-seconds sustained sound productions of vowels /IY/, /AA/, /UW/ by one male native speaker of American English at a 3 Tesla MRI scanner.
The paper deals with the analysis of the voice function in patients with laryngeal pathology who had undergone Nd:YAG contact laser surgery. Surgery technique is believed to be gentle and sparing not only structurally but also functionally. It was shown that the methods of function evaluation of phonation such as the voice dynamic range, the main tone testing, transient characteristics of speech tracing, spectrography and electroreolaryngography can serve as a helpful tool in diagnostics and treatment follow-up. Benign laryngeal growths, cysts, scarring, hypertrophic laryngitis and cancer tumors comprise an essential group leading to phonation disturbances. In recent years essentially new surgical approaches have been initiated in the management of these pathologies. It is assumed that voice function quality is dependent not only on the nature, extent and site of the pathology but, also on the technique of the surgery employed and, consequently, on the degree of operative trauma. Contact laser ...

A 29-year-old medical resident in family practice, diagnosed with paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM) at 14 years of age and subsequently with asthma and gastroesophageal reflux disease, was referred to our clinic with PVFM recurrence following five symptom-free years. Her recurrence coincided with medical school graduation and the beginning of residency. Patient presented with inhalation phonation on every inhale during resting breathing and at natural pauses while speaking. After initial diagnosis, the patient had received behavioral therapy and medical evaluation and treatment, including heliox therapy, two supraglottoplasties, neurology evaluation (negative), Botox® therapy (unsuccessful) and asthma and reflux management.. Treatment consisted of 17 hours of direct treatment with three SLPs over two and a half days. Goals included elimination of inspiratory noise, achievement of carryover and generalization, and return to regular physical exercise. Treatment included training of the nasal ...
The purpose of this investigation was to quantify the normal intrasubject performance variability of four measures of phonatory function within and across sessions. Two different speaking tasks, syllable series and sentence production, were used to determine if more natural speaking tasks resulted in greater intrasubject variability. Vowel type ([i] versus [a]) also was varied. Estimated subglottal air pressure, mean phonatory air flow, abduction quotient, and fundamental frequency were derived from aerodynamic and electroglottographic signals obtained from 11 normally speaking men and 10 normally speaking women on four different days. Relative intrasubject variability was compared across speaking task, gender, and vowel type. Average across-session intrasubject variability was 5% for fundamental frequency and abduction quotient, 8% for estimated subglottal air pressure, and 15% for mean phonatory air flow during syllable repetition. There was significantly greater intrasubject variability for ...
Commercially available enzyme immunoassays (EIAs) were used for oestrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) receptor determination in the cytosol fraction of 118 human larynx cancer specimens and in the corresponding histologically proven non-malignant tissues. Fifty-one ER positive cancerous samples had corresponding non-cancerous tissues also expressing the receptor. A high resolution isoelectric focusing (IEF) technique followed by immunoblotting with the H222 anti-ER monoclonal antibody was used to evaluate the presence of ER isoforms in the 51 ER positive human larynx cancer specimens and in their corresponding non-malignant tissues. In both tissues, four ER isoforms were detected, with isoelectric points (pI) similar to those obtained in breast and endometrium carcinomas (6.1, 6.3, 6.6 and 6.8). A significant difference in the expression of ER isoforms between cancerous and non-cancerous tissue was found; precisely, the 94.1% of the ER positive non-malignant specimens co-expressed the four ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Error estimation of eigenfrequencies for elasticity and shell problems. AU - Oden, J. Tinsley. AU - Prudhomme, Serge. AU - Westermann, Tim. AU - Bass, Jon. AU - Botkin, Mark E.. PY - 2003/3/1. Y1 - 2003/3/1. N2 - In this paper, a method for deriving computable estimates of the approximation error in eigenvalues or eigenfrequencies of three-dimensional linear elasticity or shell problems is presented. The analysis for the error estimator follows the general approach of goal-oriented error estimation for which the error is estimated in so-called quantities of interest, here the eigenfrequencies, rather than global norms. A general theory is developed and is then applied to the linear elasticity equations. For the shell analysis, it is assumed that the shell model is not completely known and additional errors are introduced due to modeling approximations. The approach is then based on recovering three-dimensional approximations from the shell eigensolution and employing the error ...
Speech is normally produced through a series of precisely coordinated muscle movements involving respiration (the breathing mechanism), phonation (the voicing mechanism) and articulation (throat, palate, tongue, lips and teeth). These muscle movements are initiated, coordinated and controlled by the brain. They are monitored through the senses of hearing and touch. Before speaking, an individual takes a breath and the vocal folds (or vocal cords), which are two bands of muscular tissue located in the voice box directly above the trachea or windpipe, come together. The voice is produced by vibrations of the vocal folds as the air from the lungs passes through them. The sound of the voice is passed through the throat and is directed into the mouth for most speech sounds, or into the nose for nasal sounds such as m, n, and ng. The palate, tongue, jaw and lips move in precise ways to modify the sounds in order to make speech sounds. ...
A model-based inverse filtering scheme is proposed for an accurate, non-invasive estimation of the aerodynamic source of voiced sounds at the glottis. The approach, referred to as subglottal impedance-based inverse filtering (IBIF), takes as input the signal from a lightweight accelerometer placed on the skin over the extrathoracic trachea and yields estimates of glottal airflow and its time derivative, offering important advantages over traditional methods that deal with the supraglottal vocal tract. The proposed scheme is based on mechano-acoustic impedance representations from a physiologically-based transmission line model and a lumped skin surface representation. A subject-specific calibration protocol is used to account for individual adjustments of subglottal impedance parameters and mechanical properties of the skin. Preliminary results for sustained vowels with various voice qualities show that the subglottal IBIF scheme yields comparable estimates with respect to current ...
The uvular ejective is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is ⟨qʼ⟩. Features of the uvular ejective: Its manner of articulation is occlusive, which means it is produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract. Since the consonant is also oral, with no nasal outlet, the airflow is blocked entirely, and the consonant is a stop. Its place of articulation is uvular, which means it is articulated with the back of the tongue (the dorsum) at the uvula. Its phonation is voiceless, which means it is produced without vibrations of the vocal cords. It is an oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth only. It is a central consonant, which means it is produced by directing the airstream along the center of the tongue, rather than to the sides. The airstream mechanism is ejective (glottalic egressive), which means the air is forced out by pumping the glottis upward. One ...
The bilabial trill is uncommon. The coronal trill is most frequently alveolar [r͇], but dental and postalveolar articulations [r̪] and [r̠] also occur. An alleged retroflex trill found in Toda has been transcribed [ɽ] (that is, the same as the retroflex flap), but might be less ambiguously written [ɽ͡r], as only the onset is retroflex, with the actual trill being alveolar. The epiglottal trills are identified by the IPA as fricatives, with the trilling assumed to be allophonic.[1] However, analyzing the sounds as trills may be more economical.[2] There are also so-called strident vowels which are accompanied by epiglottal trill.. The cells in the IPA chart for the velar, (upper) pharyngeal, and glottal places of articulation are shaded as impossible. (The glottis quite readily vibrates, but this occurs as the phonation of vowels and consonants, not as a consonant of its own.) According to Esling (2010),[3] palatal trills are also implausible. The upper pharyngeal tract cannot reliably ...
The uvular ejective affricate is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. The symbol in the International Phonetic Alphabet that represents this sound is q͡χʼ. It was a phoneme in the original version of the constructed language Ithkuil and is used allophonically in several Northeast Caucasian languages. Features of the uvular ejective affricate: Its manner of articulation is affricate, which means it is produced by first stopping the airflow entirely, then allowing air flow through a constricted channel at the place of articulation, causing turbulence. Its place of articulation is uvular, which means it is articulated with the back of the tongue (the dorsum) at the uvula. Its phonation is voiceless, which means it is produced without vibrations of the vocal cords. It is an oral consonant, which means air is allowed to escape through the mouth only. It is a central consonant, which means it is produced by directing the airstream along the center of the tongue, rather than ...
The constrictor muscles that shape the vocal tract are very useful and also protect the vocal folds if a singer is exposed to great strain. The throat constricts if, for example, we lift something heavy or become emotional or frightened. Constriction of the throat is quite practical when we lift something heavy, because it prevents a strain on the vocal folds, but it is very impractical to constrict uncontrolled around the voice when we sing as the vocal folds must have room to stretch. Thus, we talk about uncontrolled constriction of the throat being the singers main enemy, not constriction or the constrictor muscles themselves.. It is not difficult for the vocal folds to stretch or slacken, but it becomes difficult if the movement is obstructed. An obstruction is any uncontrolled constriction that prevents the vocal folds from stretching, thereby making it difficult to reach higher notes. A singer will try even harder to reach the note, often worsening the uncontrolled constriction. ...

Getting poor reviews wasn't the only bad news greeting the new musical Thou Shalt Not last week. On Thursday, Oct. 25, opening night, lead actor Craig Bierko ruptured one of his vocal cords when he was accidentally hit in the larynx during a fight scene. He's been out of the show since Oct. 26 on vocal rest. Production spokesperson Philip Rinaldi told Playbill On-Line (Oct. 30) it's hoped that Bierko will be back within a week, but there's no set return date at this point. He finished the show and went to the opening night party, Rinaldi said, but the next day he was hemorrhaging and had to be brought to the hospital. It was just a freak thing that happened.

II. Multiple regression analyses. The second aim of this study was to determine the acoustic correlates of the perceived emotions by means of multiple regression analyses, with ratings of emotions as dependent variables, and acoustic data as predictors. Acoustic analyses. A total of 20 acoustic parameters were determined for each of the 70 phrases. The parameters included measures of duration, intensity, vibrato, spectral slope and accuracy of fundamental frequency.. Four duration parameters were determined (in s): the total phrase duration, and the duration of three vowels in the phrase: the vowel /a:/ in the first instance of the word Vater, the vowel /P / in the word h rest and the vowel /i:/ in the phrase-final word nicht. Intensity (in dB SPL) was determined for the entire phrase and the aforementioned three vowels /a:/, /P /, and /i:/. Measures of vibrato frequency and extent were manually determined for the three vowels on the basis of an F0 trace obtained with the signal analysis ...
He was a down and out person. He was about maintaining the appoggio posture. Low larynx. The inhalation of the breath puts the instrument in the proper position and then you leave it there. You sing from where the breath places the instrument. I went to see him years later in Annapolis and he said to me, Marvin, what do you thing about subglottal air compression? He used a lot of vocal frys to get this subglottal compression that would guide the voice. He would say that the last point of resistance is at the vocal folds. He would say to sing in your body on that feeling of sub-glotal pressure. He believed that the diaphragm could not be controlled directly, and that the larynx was an organ of reaction. You must always treat it like that. He talked about jelly belly. The epigrastrium could not be tight. There was nothing in between these two things (Marvin places one hand on his lower abdomen and the other of his head.) That is the goal of resonance. He hated throaty singing. Harshaw ...

  • The value of maximum time predicted for women, was calculated by multiplying the vital capacity by 0.0051, and the value found was decisive for the classification of phonation time /a/ in normal, below or above expectations. (scielo.br)
  • Measured onset pressure thresholds are used to validate the outcome of a theoretical model of phonation using a reduced mechanical model. (edu.au)
  • A membrane model of the vocal cord is presented to shed light upon the mechanism of phonation from a mechanical point of view. (isca-speech.org)
  • Therefore, the present model is suitable for understanding of the mechanical phenomena of phonation. (isca-speech.org)
  • PTP and PTF at phonation onset and offset were measured on a bench apparatus. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The KayPENTAX Computerized Speech Lab will be used to record and analyze sustained phonation (AH) and provide a measure of noise to harmonic ratio. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Phonation is the production of vocal sound and speech. (visiblebody.com)

  • The sound produced from phonation is weak…no more than a whisper. (wikibooks.org)
  • Phonation provides the periodic sound source for all voiced speech sounds. (edu.au)
  • The rate at which the cords open and close, the number of cycles per second, determines the pitch of the phonation. (wikipedia.org)

  • Investigation of phonation using excised larynxes. (mit.edu)
  • Voiceless and supra-glottal phonations are included under this definition. (wikipedia.org)
  • In linguistics, a phone is called voiceless if there is no phonation during its occurrence. (wikipedia.org)
  • In speech, voiceless phones are associated with vocal folds that are elongated, highly tensed, and placed laterally (abducted) when compared to vocal folds during phonation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The names of all of these languages are summarized in an Appendix, along with some additional basic information about each language: genetic affiliation, where spoken, references, and type of phonations contrasted Voiced vs. voiceless contrasts The majority of languages employ two points along the phonation continuum in making contrasts: voiced and voiceless sounds.
