Converges at the internal capsule. Descends through midbrain to the crus cerebri. Continues to pons and medulla to the pyramid. Cortical spinal tract 2
80% of fibers cross at the pyramid of the medulla and become lateral corticospinal tract. If they do not cross they become the anterior corticospinal tract. Fibers continue to the spinal tract Cortical spinal tract 3
Lesions in the internal capsule would cause this damage Contralateral
Lesions in the anterior cortical spinal tract would cause this damage Same side, less damage

Will exit to innervate head and neck, exits at the midbrain to innervate occulomotor nerve and some will exit in the pons or medulla for the vagus nerve Cortical Bulbar Tract, 2

Ear, receives info from the pinna, involved in contact ulcers with a burning sensation behind the ear Aricular (sensory) vagus branch
Supplies the carotid sinus reflex and helps control blood pressure, palpitations will be a symptom Cardiac (motor) vagus branch
Goes to the pharynx and velum, tensor veli palatini is NOT innervated Pharyngeal (motor) vagus branch
sensory branch receives info from the mucous membranes of the larynx, epiglottis, esophagus, supraglottic walls, and pharyngeal walls. Motor branch innervates the cricothyroid and inferior pharyngeal constrictor Superior Laryngeal (sensory-motor) vagus branch

Theory based on anatomical model by Hirano states there are 2 layers of vocal folds that allow for mucosal wave Body-Cover Theory of Phonation

distance between two successive events in simple harmonic motion Wavelength
Combining two sine waves Complex tone
Wave with the highest energy Fundamental frequency
Air, volume, length, and material Will affect sound and tone
Movement of air based on Bernoulli principle. As air flow increases internal pressure decreases. Air flows through vocal folds and is constricted, moving faster, causing internal pressure to drop and suck vocal folds together. Myoelastic and aerodynamic theory 1
Once the vocal folds are closed pressure will build up again and cause them to blow back open. The faster air moves the more pressure will drop Myoelastic and aerodynamic theory 2
the vocal folds will continue to come together after being moved apart Self sustaining oscillation
Amplitude as a function of frequency Spectrum
amplitude as a function of time Wavelength
the major concentration of energy Resonant frequencies/poles
next greatest concentration of energy, multiples of the fundamental frequency Formants/harmonics
How the input changes from pure sound to phonation and the dampening characteristics of the vocal tract that changes input to output by absorbing energy or resonating energy Transfer function
Where energy is being absorbed, valleys with decreased energy Anti-resonances/zeros
source is created at the glottal level by the vocal folds that create pure noise, its spectrum decreases at a uniform rate. Air passes through vocal tract some frequencies are dampened and some are resonated. Filter is the vocal tract Source filter theory
Two masses that are connected to muscles that make them elastic. the muscles move back and forth to change the shape of the vocal fold (vertical phasing). Biomechanical explanation for vertical phasing Two mass model of phonation
Superior and inferior levels of the vocal folds have phase relationship (bottom portions of the vocal folds open and close first to create the mucosal wave) Vertical phasing
8 masses represented the body, 8 masses represented the cover. Biomechanical explanation for longitudinal phasing 16 mass model of phonation
