  • Parkinson's Disease: A Case Study Summary

    treatment program that differed from the LSVT only in that it emphasized high respiratory effort over high respiratory-phonatory effort. The results of this comparison showed that while LSVT resulted in greater improvements in sound pressure level (SPL) over the alternative program, the other program still contributed to patient improvement in vocal loudness. Since vocal loudness was able to be improved without the phonatory emphasis highlighted in LSVT program, the researchers wished to examine the possibility that the improvements found through the use of LSVT are the result of extraneous…

    Rory to stay at his place with him. This is the type of behavior that we see in stage two. Both Logan and Rory are receiving something out of the exchange and thus it is fine for them to have an affair. Kohlberg states that in these stages, higher levels of reasoning also contain the understanding of the lower reasoning stages.

  • The Importance Of Noise

    “unwanted sound or loud discordant or disagreeable sound or sounds.” (HSA). When “vibrations are transmitted through the air in the form of waves, they strike the ear, these waves produce the sensation of sound” (How Stuff Work). Our ears are divided into three sections each section with its own parts and functions play their part in enabling us to hear a noise or sound. The outer ear collects and carries vibrations (sound) to the middle ear where it is amplified allowing the inner ear to hear…

    researcher said that people “need two ears to localize sounds,” so when using an earbud, drivers are not able to tell where honking, sirens, trains, and pedestrians, as well as other noises are coming from. One research group, Injury Physicians of Minnesota, says that “[w]earing [earbuds] while you drive [...] decreases your sensory input and endangers other drivers.” This means that when a driver listens to music while driving, the quality of their senses are reduced, so they do not see and…

  • Porous Materials Essay

    the voids are filled with a fluid (usually air). The physical properties of the materials can be characterised by bulk, macroscopic and microscopic properties. Most of which have an impact on the acoustical performance of the material. Sound energy is lost in porous materials when it is transformed into heat. This is caused by a combination of effects. Firstly, there are losses through the viscous effects between the solid matrix and the fluid when pressure waves causes the fluid to move…
