Wanna See a Larynx?

One of my professors shared a link with us today in class, and I think it’s pretty cool:

The Larynx

You have to click on start, then choose a view of the larynx. It doesn’t really matter which one you choose. The cool part is the video–way on the lower right. It’s actual footage of someone’s vocal folds as they speak. My professor told us that the left vocal fold is paralyzed, which accounts for some of the strange speech sounds. Pretty cool, in a nerdy kind of way.
