1. Introduction Human speech production requires a complex coordination of motor control for respiration, vocalization, and articulation. The neural mechanisms for speaking have been studied since the 17th century, yet many questions remain in determining the brain regions involved in speech production. In evidence of this, recent functional brain imaging studies examining normal subjects' articulation have resulted in inconsistent activation patterns. The regions that are engaged in speech… CONTINUE READING
