Abstract:
			
Speaking is one of the most complex skills that humans perform. In
our everyday communication, we transfer sentences, concepts, thoughts,
and ideas. How though, is the speaker able to convert these into
movements of the speech apparatus? These speech movements are the
observable end product, but what neurological, psycholinguistic, and
perceptual-motor processes lie behind their production?

To fully understand speech disorders, such as stuttering, apraxia of
speech, and Parkinsonian dysarthria, the disruptions in this complex
interplay are highly relevant. Equally important is the question of
how the infant develops from random babbling to precisely controlled
production of words, syllables, and phonemes.

This volume presents state of the art research in the science of
speech motor control and speech disorders. All the chapters take a
fundamental, model-oriented perspective, as introduced in the first
section of the volume. Further topics covered in this book are: brain
imaging studies and the rapid progression in comprehending neural
mechanisms; developmental studies revealing perceptual-motor
continuities and discontinuities; psycholinguistic experimentation
showing higher order influences on speech motor control; and recent
notions and applications to the understanding of speech disorders.

This will be an important volume for all those involved in speech
research and speech pathology, including those from the disciplines of
psychology, neurology, and ENT.
