    Folia Phoniatr Logop 57:255-77. 2005
    ..Substantial muscle activity is observed in PN during inhalation and phonation. EMG biofeedback performed on TR and STM have a secondary effect of lowering EMG activity in PN...

    Viggo Pettersen
    Department of Music and Dance, University of Stavanger, Stavanger, Norway
    Folia Phoniatr Logop 58:427-39. 2006
    ..The activity in the pectoralis major (PC) muscle and the phasing of PC activity to sternocleidomastoideus (STM) activity and upper thorax (UTX) movement were investigated...

    J Voice 19:623-34. 2005
    ..TR contributed to exhalation in demanding singing with long breathing cycles, but it was less active in singing tasks with short breathing cycles and was essentially inactive in simplified speaking tasks...

    V Pettersen
    Stavanger University College, School of Art Education, N 4068 Stavanger, Norway
    Logoped Phoniatr Vocol 27:169-78. 2002
    ..We conclude that singers, although having an enhanced awareness of posture, still may have overuse of especially the TR muscle, but probably also the STM muscle...
