Acoustic and Perceptual Consequences of Articulatory Rate Change in Parkinson Disease
- Vocal tract area function estimation from midsagittal dimensions with CT scans and a vocal tract... Perrier, P.; Boe, L. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Feb92, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p53
Presents a model which shows the generation of area functions from measurements of the sagittal section, which is an important step in the study of the relation between vocal tract geometry and speech acoustics. The model is based on analysis ofa vocal tract cast for large sagittal dimensions...
- SPEECH Dances of the Vocal Tract. Goldstein, Louis; Rubin, Philip // Odyssey;Jan2007, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p14
The article discusses the role of vocal tract in the production of speech.
- The response to sudden change in vocal tract resistance during stop consonant production. Kim, Jong-Ryoul; Zajac, David J. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug1997, Vol. 40 Issue 4, p848
Investigates responses to sudden change in vocal tract resistance during stop consonant production. Ability of the speech respiratory system to adapt to changes in the airway environment; Rapid occurrence of compensatory respiratory responses to suprathreshold pressure-venting after valve...
- An Auditory-Feedback-Based Neural Network Model of Speech Production That Is Robust to Developmental Changes in the Size and Shape of the Articulatory System. Callan, Daniel E.; Kent, Ray D.; Guenther, Frank H.; Vorperian, Houri K. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2000, Vol. 43 Issue 3, p721
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that self-produced auditory feedback is sufficient to train a mapping between auditory target space and articulator space under conditions in which the structures of speech production are undergoing considerable developmental restructuring. One...
- How children learn to organize their speech gestures: Further evidence from fricative-vowel... Nittrouer, Susan; Studdert-Kennedy, Michael // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Apr96, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p379
Studies the production of fricative-vowel syllables in children's speech. Difference in the overall spectrum between fricatives in children's and adult's speech; Role of age-related difference in vocal-tract geometry on age-related difference in vowel effects on fricative noise; Difference...
- Parkinson's Disease and Me. Caruso, Anthony J. // ASHA Leader;7/24/2001, Vol. 6 Issue 13, p7
Shares the story of a person with Parkinson's disease who is practicing as a speech-language pathologist. Description of the disease; Pharmacological benefit of the oil used to temporarily increase the dopamine level affected by Parkinsonism; Experiences as a university professor while on...
- Better Parkinson's Disease-Related Speech Therapy Is Just A Shout Away. // Physical Medicine & Rehab Coding Alert;Oct2010, Vol. 11 Issue 10, p77
The article discusses the use of Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) method for the treatment of Parkinson's disease patients with speech and voice problems.
- Speech Motor Stability in IPD: Effects of Rate and Loudness Manipulations. Kleinow, Jennifer; Smith, Anne; Ramig, Lorraine Olson // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2001, Vol. 44 Issue 5, p1041
Increasing phonatory effort, an integral component of the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment, LSVT, has been identified as an effective management strategy for adults with hypokinetic dysarthria associated with Parkinsonism. The present study compares the effects of increased loudness on lower lip...
- Better Voice Therapy for Parkinson's. Harrar, Sari; Bauman, Alisa // Prevention;Jun2002, Vol. 54 Issue 6, p165
Reports that Parkinson's disease patients who receive speech therapy called the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) are able to speak with more volume and greater clarity than patients who do not receive therapy.
