Where is the human voice box?

The larynx, or voice box, is located in the neck and performs several important functions in the body. The larynx is involved in swallowing, breathing, and voice production. Sound is produced when the air which passes through the vocal cords causes them to vibrate and create sound waves in the pharynx, nose and mouth.

How does the voice box work?

The voicebox is made of cartilage – just like the pliant tip of your nose, or the flexible material in your kneecaps – and contains small bands of tissue that can expand and contract. That tissue pulls together, and the air rushing through it causes the bands to vibrate. When that happens you get sound.

Why is everyone’s voice different?

The sound of each individual’s voice is entirely unique not only because of the actual shape and size of an individual’s vocal cords but also due to the size and shape of the rest of that person’s body, especially the vocal tract, and the manner in which the speech sounds are habitually formed and articulated.

Where do our voices come from?

The vocal folds (vocal cords) are attached within the larynx to the largest of the laryngeal cartilages known as the thyroid cartilage or “Adam’s apple”. The vocal folds produce sound when they come together and then vibrate as air passes through them during exhalation of air from the lungs.

Is it possible to have the same voice as someone?

Although some people might sound quite a bit alike, no two voices are ever exactly alike. We each have a unique voice because so many factors work together to produce that voice.

Can you talk without a voice box?

If you have had all of your larynx removed (total laryngectomy), you will not be able to speak normally, because you’ll no longer have vocal cords. There are a number of different ways you can learn to communicate again, although they can take weeks or months to learn.

What makes a man’s voice deep?

The deepness of a voice is primarily determined by the length and thickness of the vocal cords. Longer and thicker vocal cords produce lower, James Earl Jones-like pitches. So, if you want a deeper voice, you just need to thicken and lengthen your vocal cords.

Why do old people’s voices sound old?

As people get older, the larynx (voice box), vocal folds (cords), and voice-producing mechanism age along with the rest of the body. Age-related voice changes develop as muscle and other tissues in the larynx and vocal cords shrink, thin, and stiffen.

What is a stoma in the neck?

A stoma is a hole (opening) made in the skin in front of your neck to allow you to breathe. It is at the base of your neck. Through this hole, air enters and leaves your windpipe (trachea) and lungs. You can see when and how you might have a stoma in our surgery section.

What happens when you have your voice box removed?

If the larynx is removed, air can no longer pass from the lungs into the mouth. The connection between the mouth and the windpipe no longer exists. In order to allow air to get into the lungs, an new opening must be made in the front of the neck.
