In 1990, Arnold Aronson proposed that some individuals are predisposed either by personality or physical makeup to manifest emotional distress through changes in sensation or function of the larynx or voice.
This notion seems generally agreed-upon and is a diagnostic and therapeutic lynchpin in the clinical management of voice disorders. However, little evidence supports the existence of “laryngoresponders” in any meaningful way.
This talk will synthesize existing evidence about stress-, autonomic-, and personality-based relationships with the larynx and voice, and describe current efforts to test the notion that laryngoresponders can be identified in the general population.
