Speaking is not only the basic mode of communication, but also the most complex motor skill humans can perform. Disorders of speech and language are the most common sequelae of brain disease or injury, a condition faced by millions of people each year. Health care practitioners need to interact with basic scientists in order to develop and evaluate new methods of clinical diagnosis and therapy to help their patients overcome or compensate their communication difficulties. In recent years, collaboration between those in the the disciplines of neurophysiology, cognitive psychology, mathematical modelling, neuroscientists, and speech science have helped accelerate progress in the field. This book presents the latest and most important theoretical developments in the area of speech motor control, offering new insights by leaders in their field into speech disorders. The scope of this book is broad - presenting state-of-the art research in the areas of modelling, genetics, brain imaging, behavioral experimentation in addition to clinical applications. The book will be valuable for researchers and clinicians in speech-language pathology, cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology, and neurology. Includes studies integrating different perspectives on speech disorders, helping to foster mutual understanding and collaboration among researchers from different disciplines Includes chapters on modelling, development, disorders, clinical impact, and methods, thus providing a comprehensive overview of the field Disorders of speech and language are extremely common - this book will therefore be valuable for many clinicians and researchers Ben Maassen , Department of Neurolinguistics, University of Groningen, and Pascal van Lieshout , Department of Speech Language Pathology, University of Toronto CONTENTS Section One: Modelling of speech production 1: Wolfram Ziegler, Anja Staiger, Ingrid Aichert: Apraxia of Speech 2: Bernd Kröger, Peter Birkholz, Anja Lowit, and Christiane Neuschaefer-Rube: Phonemic, sensory and motor representations in a neural model of speech production 3: Sazzad Nasir and David Ostry: Control of movement precision in speech production 4: Mark Tiede, Suzanne Boyce, Carol Espy-Wilson, and Vincent Gracco: Variability of north-american /r/ production in response to palatal perturbation Section 2: Genetics and Neurology 5: Soo-Eun Chang and Christy Ludlow: Brain imaging in children 6: Angela Morgan, Frédérique Liégeois, and Faraneh Vargha-Khadem: Motor Speech Profile in Relation to Site of Brain Pathology 7: Hermann Ackermann and Axel Riecker: Cerebral control of motor aspects of speech production: Neurophysiological and functional imaging data Section 3: Speech motor development 8: Lisa Goffman: Dynamic interaction of motor and language factors in normal and disordered development 9: Aude Noiray, Marie- Agnès Cathiard, Lucie Ménard, and Christian Abry: Lip Rounding Anticipatory Control: Crosslinguistically Lawful and Ontogenetically Attuned 10: Jordan Green and Ignatius Nip: Some Organization Principles in Early Speech Development Section 4: Fluency Disorders 11: Pascal van Lieshout and Aravind Namasivayam: Speech motor variability in people who stutter 12: Peter Howell, Andrew Anderson, and Jorge Lucero: Speech Motor Timing and Fluency Sction 5: Clinical Impact 13: Gary Weismer: Classification and taxonomy in motor speech disorders: What are the issues? 14: Ben Maassen, Lian Nijland and Hayo Terband: Developmental models of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) 15: Lawrence Shriberg: A Neurodevelopmental Framework for Research in Childhood Apraxia of Speech 16: Joseph Duffy: Distinguishing among motor speech disorders is important: The role of speech pathology in neurologic diagnosis 17: Christopher Dromey: Laryngeal articulatory coupling in three speech disorders 18: Elina Tripoliti and Patricia Limousin: Electrical stimulation of deep brain structures and speech Section 6: Methods 19: Bruce Murdoch: Recent advances in the physiological assessment of articulation: Introducing three dimensional technology 20: Phil Hoole and Andreas Zierdt: Five-dimensional articulography 21: Tim Bressmann: 2D and 3D ultrasound imaging of the tongue in normal speakers and disordered speech
