With current progress in genetic research, autosomal, dominant, hereditary, neurodegenerative diseases, affecting the cerebellum and cerebellar connections, are increasingly diagnosed as spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA). In the present study speech samples from 21 subjects with spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA), and 21 matched

Resonance frequencies of the vocal tract have traditionally been modelled using one-dimensional models. These cannot accurately represent the events in the frequency region of the formant cluster around 2.5-4.5 kHz, however. Here, the vocal tract resonance frequencies and their mode

To evaluate the presence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and its correlation to extraesophageal and esophageal reflux, 18 consecutive contact granuloma patients were examined by laryngoscopy, 24-hour double probe pH monitoring and [13C]-urea breath test. Sixteen of the 18
