Abstract:

In this book, Frank Guenther offers a comprehensive, unified account of the
neural computations underlying speech production, with an emphasis on speech
motor control rather than linguistic content. Guenther focuses on the brain
mechanisms responsible for commanding the musculature of the vocal tract to
produce articulations that result in an acoustic signal conveying a desired
string of syllables. Guenther provides neuroanatomical and neurophysiological
descriptions of the primary brain structures involved in speech production,
looking particularly at the cerebral cortex and its interactions with the
cerebellum and basal ganglia, using basic concepts of control theory
(accompanied by nontechnical explanations) to explore the computations
performed by these brain regions.

Guenther offers a detailed theoretical framework to account for a broad range
of both behavioral and neurological data on the production of speech. He
discusses such topics as the goals of the neural controller of speech; neural
mechanisms involved in producing both short and long utterances; and disorders
of the speech system, including apraxia of speech and stuttering. Offering a
bridge between the neurological and behavioral literatures on speech
production, the book will be a valuable resource for researchers in both
fields.
