    ability of the true vocal folds without the involvement of any supraglottal activity. The patient had difficulty with this task and phonated on the exhalation rather than the inhalation. Laryngeal Massage (10:56) This speech task involved the clinician performing a laryngeal neck massage as they elicited phrases from the patient such as, “Who did it?” and sustained /m/. The patient noted feeling a difference in the quality of production after the laryngeal massage. Tongue Protrusion (11:30) This speech task involved protruding the tongue and simultaneously producing the word “me” repeatedly. This task opens up the back of the throat.

    Abduction Lab Report

    • 396 Words
    • 2 Pages

    of us have a pair of vocal folds that separate when we do this. This process is called abduction. We use a small intrinsic muscle in our larynx that pulls the vocal folds apart allowing and allows air to move into our lungs. This causes the glottis to open from the back to the front, and the vocal folds wave from the back to the front. The posterior cricoarytenoid muscle is responsible for this abduction process. Originating from a widespread area on either side of the cricoid lamina,…

    way that the vocal folds vibrate. The theory consists of an interaction of muscle forces (myo), elastic recoil forces (elastic), and aerodynamic forces. I will now describe the myoelastic-aerodynamic theory using the following diagram. Diagram A starts on the exhalation phase and the vocal folds are in phonatory position. The vocal folds are contracted by the Interarytenoids and the Lateral cricoid arytenoids. These muscles (IA and LCA) put the vocal folds in the phonotory position to initiate…

    These performers have to perform eight shows a week, typically one each night of the week Tuesday-Friday, two shows on Saturday and Sunday. The only day of week these performers get off are Monday’s. Throughout the week, each and every night these performers are stretching their vocal ability usually to their limit so that they can entertain the thousands of audience members that have come to see the show every night, because you never know who could be in the audience.

    In order for proper safe and healthy singing techniques one most understand how the velum, pharynx, tongue, jaw, lips and how they work together. A singer must also understand how all of these muscles make up the structure that contributes to production of sustained singing voice. The soft palate is responsible for closing off the nasal passages when one swallows, and also for closing off the airway. When someone sneezes, it protects the nasal passage by directing a portion of the substance to…

    The laryngeal muscles of the phonatory system are comprised of a group of both intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. Out of these two muscle groups, the placement of the extrinsic muscles are what confuse me the most. The extrinsic laryngeal muscles are further divided into suprahyoid and infrahyoid muscles. The suprahyoid muscles attach superiorly to the hyoid bone and elevate the larynx and hyoid bone, while the infrahyoid muscles attach inferiorly to the hyoid bone and depress the larynx and the…

    Research has shown that MCT improves vocal quality immediately after treatment and in the short- term, with individuals with MTD. Improvements in vocal quality include: jitter, shimmer, signal to noise ratio, and reduced intensity (Mathieson et al., 2009; Reimann et al., 2016; Roy & Leeper, 1993; Roy et al., 1997; Van Lierde et al., 2004; Van Lierde et al., 2008). Reimann and colleagues (2016), did conclude that MCT does increase roughness in vocal quality due to muscle rebalance in the…

    Vocal Nodules Essay

    • 958 Words
    • 4 Pages

    In any singer’s life, the formation of vocal nodules on the vocal cords can bring about feelings of fear and devastation. Though treatment is available, vocal nodules have the potential to permanently damage or change the voice, making singing painful and almost impossible. However, if one seeks treatment immediately, nodules can be eradicated. Nodules are formed when the voice is continuously abused, and among other symptoms, may cause throat inflammation, hoarseness, and the feeling of a lump…

    Anatomicals Of Singing

    • 1050 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Singing is anatomical: the brain thinks, and the body responds, any time and any place, that is, if lifestyle behaviors have not deformed the vocal instrument (i.e., excessive spicy foods, alcohol, smoking, screaming, et cetera). Singing begins with an exhalation of human vocal sounds (phonation) (NIDCD, 2015). At the point of phonation, two smooth adjacent muscle tissues in the thorax come into contact and vibrate to create resonating sound waves from the throat, mouth, and nose (NIDCD, 2015).…
