Instructing subjects to make a voluntary response reveals the presence of two components to the audio-vocal reflex
Abstract. Previous findings have shown that subjects respond to an alteration, or shift, of auditory feedback pitch with a change in voice fundamental frequency (F0). When pitch shifts exceeding 500Expand

The role of syntactic complexity in treatment of sentence deficits in agrammatic aphasia: the complexity account of treatment efficacy (CATE).
This experiment examined the hypothesis that training production of syntactically complex sentences results in generalization to less complex sentences that have processes in common with treatedExpand

Effect of Verb Network Strengthening Treatment (VNeST) on lexical retrieval of content words in sentences in persons with aphasia
Background: Verb Network Strengthening Treatment (VNeST) is a semantic treatment that aims to improve lexical retrieval of content words in sentence context by promoting systematic retrieval of verbsExpand

Effects of pitch-shift velocity on voice Fo responses.
Previous studies have shown that voice fundamental frequency (F0) is modified by changes in the pitch of vocal feedback and have demonstrated that the audio-vocal control system has both open- andExpand

Comparison of voice F0 responses to pitch-shift onset and offset conditions.
In order to maintain a steady voice fundamental frequency (F0), it is assumed that people compare their auditory feedback pitch with an internal (memory) or external (acoustic) referent. In theExpand
