Respiratory/laryngeal interactions during sustained vowel production in children

Donald S. Finan, Carol A. Boliek

Like many other rhythmic movements, respiratory behaviors arise from a central pattern generator (CPG). Modulation of the respiratory CPG function is requisite to generate the air pressures and flows essential for speech production. The emergence of voluntary respiratory system control and the coordination of respiratory and laryngeal structures likely parallels and contributes to the development of speech. Perturbation experiments have proven to be fruitful in exploring neural control of many CPG-modulated behaviors. Little is known about the development of respiratory control and the coordination between respiratory and laryngeal systems, especially for complex behaviors such as speech production. The purpose of this study was to investigate the interaction between laryngeal and respiratory responses to mechanical respiratory perturbation in children.
