Palatography: Static and Dynamic

The Phonetics Lab has supplies for static palatography, and a Kay Palatometer Model 6300 for Electropalatography.  This site has extensive information about both techniques.

Carstens AG100 Electromagnetic Articulograph

The lab owns the Carstens system (AG100) for electromagnetic articulography (EMA), along with software for analyzing EMA data.  This site has extensive information about using this system.

Aerodynamic data acquisition ( Pressure/Flow )

X16 data acquisition:
The lab has facilities for acquiring aerodynamic data with PCquirerX software and X16 hardware by Scicon Research & Development.  This is often set up and ready to use in the General Lab.  We also have Rothenberg masks (split and all-together) and a collection of weather-stripping for fitting them to a talker's face, but they have not been used with the Acquirer hardware.  


The lab owns the Glottal Enterprises electroglottograph, used with the same setup as for aerodynamic data acquisition (can be used simultaneously).

Modeling Software

Aerodynamic Modeling:
A very rough new version of the old Westbury & Keating aerodynamic model (VTM) can be had from Pat.  We also have the Sensimetrics HLSyn program; but HLSyn does not allow the study of subglottal pressure. 

Physiology resources

The lab's holdings of physiological recordings are described here.
Digitized Xray films from our collection are available here.
