Vocal Folds Vocal folds in action .

Intrinsic Laryngeal Muscles .

Cricothyroid Muscle ‡ Pulls the thyroid cartilage forward. increasing the distance between the thyroid and arytenoid cartilages ‡ Tenses the vocal cord ‡ Innervated by external laryngeal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (X) .

Lateral Cricoarytenoid Muscle Draws the muscular process of the arytenoid cartilage anteriorly. which pivots the arytenoid cartilage and adducts the vocal folds .
