The anatomy and physiology of voice include not only the larynx but also all body systems. The larynx consists of a skeleton, mucosa, intrinsic muscles, and extrinsic muscles. The vocal folds form the oscillator of the vocal tract, the subglottic vocal tract acts as a power source, and the supraglottic vocal tract functions as a resonator. Complex interactions are responsible for voice production.
