Rocket science that could restore voices: Effie Gutmark and Sid Khosla

"These patients just want to be understood."

Believe it or not, we still don’t fully understand the mechanics behind the human voice — but rocket science can help. In this fascinating talk from TEDxCincy, Vocal cord specialist Dr. Sid Khosla teams up with rocket scientist Dr. Effie Gutmark to explain how the basic dynamics of airflow could lead to new techniques for treating voice and swallowing disorders.
