A model for vocal fold vibratory motion, contact area, and the electroglottogram.


The electroglottogram (EGG) has been conjectured to be related to the area of contact between the vocal folds. This hypothesis has been substantiated only partially via direct and indirect observations. In this paper, a simple model of vocal fold vibratory motion is used to estimate the vocal fold contact area as a function of time. This model employs a… (More)
