Vocalis Muscle

Term Category: Anatomy

The vocalis muscle, also known as the thyroarytenoid muscle, is a key component of the larynx and vocal fold control. It is the deepest layer of the vocal folds, adjacent to the vocal ligament. The vocalis muscle plays a crucial role in fine-tuning vocal quality and pitch modulation by adjusting the tension and thickness of the vocal folds, influencing the voice's timbre and pitch.
