Fatigue and weakness in the elderly are the functional consequences of underlying neuromuscular decline. However, little is known about the manifestations of aging in the larynx. This study evaluated the manner in which laryngeal senescence affects laryngeal-respiratory kinematics by videorecording laryngeal motion in both young and old rats. Recorded(More)
Dynamic remodeling of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) structure is postulated as a cause of age-related muscular atrophy. Direct study of NMJ morphology in laryngeal muscles is important to our understanding of age-related decrements in voice and swallowing. The morphology of NMJs was studied in a rat model to compare young and old specimens of thyroarytenoid(More)
Arytenoid adduction is a phonosurgical procedure in which the arytenoid cartilages are approximated to reduce posterior glottal gap size and improve voice. Voice outcomes following arytenoid adduction are not always optimal. The goal of this study was to systematically vary suture direction and force of pull on the arytenoid cartilages in a human excised(More)
The clinical utility of the heart rate (HR) response as an index of hearing in infant children under 12 months of age was investigated. The most prominent component of the averaged HR response elicited with a short tone burst of 100 msec duration was a brief HR deceleration which mostly occurred between the first and second beats after stimulation. The mean(More)
