Topic: Hormones and the Voice
This presentation will discuss three of my studies that evaluate the effects of hormones on the voice. After a brief overview of sexual dimorphism of the voice, I will discuss my tutorial article that highlights sex differences in the aging voice and the implications for voice therapy. The second study will be an introduction to the rat model as a unique behavioral model to evaluate sexual dimorphism of the voice. The third study is my dissertation work that evaluates the effects of estrogen on the vocal mechanism. Together this research focuses on demystifying the effects of hormones on the voice with the overall objective to prevent and treat voice disorders.
