We take our work seriously at the NCVS. Investigators spend countless hours in labs and clinics studying computer models, in vitro tissues, and data from persons with and without voice and speech problems. These investigations provide the keys to fully understanding how the human body produces voice and how best to rehabilitate voice and speech when disease, age or trauma creates havoc with the system.
