  • Study of Singers' Physiology and Part Determination in Concerted Music

    The partition and determination of singing voice is an essential problem in vocal music teaching and studying, also an assignable significant element in vocal music training. According to acoustics, sound science, physiology principles, the human vocal organs construction principles with the wind or stringed instruments have common features. People's "voice organ" is the physiological basis of human singing, the composition of the human voice voice from the vocal cords, larynx, pharynx, oral cavity, nasal cavity, lungs and other composed of a number of organs. Voice is the voice of the physical structure and basis for the Department to determine the key.

  • Three-dimensional reconstruction of the human upper airway from computed tomography images

    An accurate reconstruction of the human upper airway is necessary for modeling and analyzing the transport and deposition of inhaled aerosols. The major object of this paper is to rebuild a three-dimensional geometric model including nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx and trachea, which is used to research the effect of inhaled aerosols on the human upper airway. This geometric model is an anatomically realistic model which derives from three-dimensional computed tomography images scanning from the whole respiratory tract of a normal adult male with 0.75 mm intervals. With the CT data provided and using image and graphics recognition technologies, we reconstruct an accurate three- dimensional model of the human upper airway (STL file format) which can be directly used by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of airflow and particle transport and laser rapid prototyping manufacture (LRPM) of respiratory tract model for the further experimental study

  • Imaging of the upper airways during hypoglossal nerve stimulation

    The upper airways were imaged in an anesthetized beagle to investigate the effect of selective stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve (HG) with a multi- contact peripheral nerve electrode. A fiberoscope lead (diam. 5 mm) was inserted transorally and positioned at various points in the upper airways while the head was fixed at either 30/spl deg/ or 90/spl deg/ from the horizontal. Images taken in the pharynx and near the base of the tongue show that stimulations delivered through the electrode contacts placed around the HG nerve trunk can generate several different patterns of tongue activation. A subset of these patterns substantially increase the size of the pharyngeal opening. These results suggest that selective stimulation of the whole HG nerve can be a useful technique to maximize the effect of the HG nerve stimulation in removing the obstructions in steep apnea patients.

  • Measuring flow velocity of swallowed liquid in the human pharynx by tongue pressure sensor and swallowing sound sensor

    We measured flow velocity of swallowed liquid passing through pharynx. We put a pressure sensor on a palate to measure tongue pressure when swallowing the liquid. And we put two acoustic sensors on the neck skin in order to measure swallowing sound when liquid passes through the pharynx. From the output of these three sensors, we can know the timing of the liquid passing through each sensor points and can calculate the flow velocity of the swallowed liquid at the pharynx. In this paper, we compare the flow velocity between two swallowing positions, “look forward position” and “look upward position.” As a result, we found that the flow velocity of the “look upward position” was 2.5 times faster than that of “look forward position.”.

  • A model for normal swallowing sounds generation based on wavelet analysis

    In this paper a new model for swallowing sounds generation is proposed. The model consists of two systems: one that simulates the movements and activities of the muscles and the bones in the pharynx and the interactions between the bolus and the pharynx structure, followed by the second system representing the transfer function of the esophageal wall structure, tissue and skin beneath the microphone as the bolus travels through. Cepstrum analysis was used to estimate this transfer function. Based on the estimated transfer function, Symlet wavelet of order 8 was used to find the impulse train representing the output of the first part of the model. To have a general understanding whether such a model can be a representative of swallowing sound generation, its performance in describing differences in swallowing sounds characteristics for two bolus textures with different viscosities was evaluated. The results show the model may predict the changes in the swallowing sounds characteristics and the outcomes of the model comply with the common knowledge of the swallowing mechanism.

  • The laryngeal channel as a variable venturi-meter

    A model of the larynx, based on the analogy between the laryngeal channel and a constriction in a pipe, was developed by integrating the actual movements of the vocal cords during the quiet respiratory cycle. The model allows one to simulate and explain (1) the shape (tilted 8 with counterclockwise sign and cycle aperture) of the upper airway pressure-flow diagram, (2) the asymmetry between inspiratory and expiratory phases and (3) the variation of upper airway resistance with gas mixture.

  • A comparison of swallowing in three subjects using an interactive image processing system

    Using an interactive computer imaging processing system, three male subjects' liquid swallows are compared. The subjects are a 32-year-old diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, a 24-year- old normal and a 71-year-old normal. This study examines aspects of tongue and hyoid bone movement and upper esophageal sphincter opening during swallowing. Trajectories and ranges of motion are compared within and across the three subjects. A novel technique to facilitate simultaneous lingual and bolus tracking during videofluoroscopic recording of swallowing is reported.<<ETX>>

  • Three-dimensional measurement of the vocal tract by MRI

    Recent studies have shown that MRI techniques are reliable at measuring mid- sagittal cuts of the vocal tract. Three dimensional images of the vocal tract have been proposed e.g. by A.V. Foldvick et al. (1991; 1995) but despite this advance, these images do not offer any accurate measurement of sagittal cuts or area functions. Advance in MRI performances allows us to collect data much faster and with a better accuracy. We propose to use this new technology to make measurements of sagital, coronal, coronal oblique and transversal cuts. The data collected allow accurate measurement of area at different points along the vocal tract. The different cuts obtained by this method are then used to make measurements of the vocal tract shape. The study focuses on French oral vowels.
