Voice and Swallowing Physiology Laboratory
Dr. Soren Y. Lowell is the director of the Voice and Swallowing Physiology Laboratory. The Voice and Swallowing Physiology lab is located in Suite 165 (165-08) at 621 Skytop Road. Research in the laboratory focuses on characteristics, mechanisms and treatment of voice and swallowing disorders.
Dr. Lowell and her research team are specifically interested in understanding more about ways to improve the differential diagnosis of voice disorders and the efficacy of voice treatment. We focus on objective methods for determining laryngeal configuration, laryngeal height, and acoustic features of the voice. Our program of research includes voice disorders related to neurological disease, as well as voice disorders that are associated with muscle misuse.
