The amount of trimming of connective tissue from(More)
Fundamental frequency-sound pressure level (fo-SPL) profiles were determined for 12 female and 10 male subjects. Profiles were obtained by having each subject produce the maximum and minimum sound pressure level of which he was capable, at 10% intervals of his fo range. Comparison of male and female profiles showed similar values for frequency range in(More)
