Two experiments were run to determine whether individual differences in auditory speech-recognition abilities are significantly correlated with those for speech reading (lipreading), employing a total sample of 90 normal-hearing college students. Tests include single words and sentences, recorded on a videodisc by a male speaker [Bernstein and Eberhardt,(More)
Laryngeal electromyography (LEMG) is clinically valuable in the evaluation of laryngeal dysfunction and vocal fold immobility. To facilitate clinical application of this electrophysiologic test, a detailed description of modified LEMG techniques is presented. The techniques were applied for simultaneous bilateral recordings of the thyroarytenoid,(More)
This study was designed to quantitatively characterize the time course of facial palsy and the relationship between electroneurography and the facial nerve grading percentage as a function of onset time. Bilateral electroneurographic recordings during different stages in the course of the disease were repeated and compared with categorized videotaped facial(More)
Otolaryngological examinations, videostroboscopic image analysis, and laryngeal electromyography were used as a test battery for a critical evaluation in 80 patients. Vocal fold movements were categorized into mobility, restricted mobility, immobility with different positions, and overactive movement. Laryngeal electromyographic examinations were conducted(More)
The role of the laryngeal reflex in glottal movement has been reported, but its mechanism remains unclear. To further investigate the neurophysiological characteristics of glottal movement, we recorded the laryngeal reflexomyographic responses (LRMRs) to electrical stimulation of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) in rabbits. The procedure involved(More)
Facial nerve injury is one of the most common neurotologic sequelae of a gunshot wound (GSW) to the head or neck. However, few neurotologic studies have been performed on the nature and time course of such facial nerve impairments. This study was designed to characterize the neurotologic manifestations and time course of facial nerve paralysis caused by(More)
