New Publication

"How can vocal folds oscillate with a limited mucosal wave?" was published in JASA Express Letters in September, 2022. Authored by Dr. Into Titze, this article is intended for recognition and conceptualization of two independent mechanisms of self-sustained oscillation that are not often compared side-by-side. 



Dr. Titze and Dr. Maxfield are preparing to attend the 15th International Conference on Advancements in Quantitative Laryngology, Voice and Speech Research in Phoenix, Arizona March 30-April 3. Dr. Titze will give a podium presentation and Dr. Maxfield will present a poster at the conference.
