A highly useful resource for faculty teaching undergraduate anatomy & physiology or graduate level voice disorder courses. The site allows step-wise progression which visually displays laryngeal anatomy, along with some videos illustrating physiology via videostroboscopy. Some animations are also included. A benefit of this site is that students can access and utilize the resource very easily outside of class for further independent learning.

I'll be encouraging my students to use this as a study guide in the Anatomy & Physiology course for speech pathology.  Well done.

Technical Remarks:

I like the illustrations as overlays atop the xray image.  The animations of intrinsic laryngeal muscles is also helpful for helping students understand the mechanics.
