Muscles in the mouth, lips and tongue alter the sound as it passes through. Now, a new way of taking magnetic resonance imaging videos will allow researchers to study exactly how all these parts of the neck and face work together in perfect harmony to produce beautiful music. That's why I've devoted my whole life to studying it: I think it's just incredible.
Johnson, who spent 10 years as a professional chorus singer, is particularly interested in the changes aging produces on the vocal system. In order to do this, I need to look at how the muscles of the larynx move in real time.
To do this, Johnson used an MRI machine capable of taking video in real time at a rate of frames per second, without losing resolution, a technique developed at the Beckman Institute. Typically, MRI machines can only take video at a rate of 10 frames per second, which is inadequate to capture the rapid tiny movements of the tongue and other muscles in the head, face and neck. Last year, UK-based musician Sivu created a music video by laying in an MRI machine and singing; however, the footage was shot over a period of around three hours and later stitched together into a seamless movie.
The Beckman Institute's technique is filmed in real time and requires no editing.
Often you can have only one these in MR imaging," said Brad Sutton, technical director of the Institute's Biomedical Imaging Center and associate professor in bioengineering at the University of Illinois. Johnson's team is currently investigating whether group singing activities with older adults will help maintain, or even improve, the structure of the larynx, resulting in more powerful voices. The full study can be found online in the journal Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.

OK, got it! Brain I could while away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers Consultin' with the rain.

And my head I'd be scratchin' while My thoughts were busy hatchin' If I only had a brain. I'd unravel every riddle for any individ'le, In trouble or in pain. With the thoughts you'll be thinkin' You could be another Lincoln If you only had a brain. Oh, I could tell you why The ocean's near the shore.
I could think of things I never thunk before. And then I'd sit, and think some more. I would not be just a nothin' my head all full of stuffin' My heart all full of pain. I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry, If I only had a brain. Just because I'm presumin' that I could be kind-a-human, If I only had heart. I'd be tender - I'd be gentle and awful sentimental Regarding Love and Art.
I'd be friends with the sparrows And the boys who shoots the arrows If I only had a heart. Picture me - a balcony. Above a voice sings low. Wherefore art thou, Romeo? I hear a beat How sweet.
Just to register emotion, jealousy - devotion, And really feel the part. I could stay young and chipper And I'd lock it with a zipper, If I only had a heart. But I could show my prowess, be a lion not a mou-ess If I only had the nerve. I'm afraid there's no denyin' I'm just a dandelion, A fate I don't deserve. I'd be brave as a blizzard I'd be gentle as a lizard I'd be clever as a gizzard If the Wizard is a Wizard who will serve.
Then I'm sure to get a brain, a heart, a home, the nerve! Explain Request.
