Abstract

Computational modeling is an important tool for studying the structure and function of human anatomy in biomedicine. In this paper, a dynamic, anatomically accurate model of the human mandibular and laryngeal structures is presented along with a set of forward dynamic simulations that show consistency with previously published jaw modeling literature. Laryngeal motion during swallowing was also simulated and shows plausible upward displacement consistent with published recordings. A novel open source modeling platform, ArtiSynth, is described in the context of its use in the construction and simulation of the biomechanical jaw and larynx model.
