**Figure 1: a. The relative shear modulus of every single larynx with respect to different angles (only mid-position of vocal folds, non-dissected). The thick line represents the median relative shear modulus of all measurements. b. The relative shear modulus of every single larynx with respect to different layers (only mid-position of vocal folds, transversal): complete vocal fold (mlpe), lamina propria, ligament and muscle (mlp), ligament and muscle (ml) and muscle alone (m). The thick line represents the median relative shear modulus of all measurements. **
