Abstract and Keywords
As the title forecasts, this chapter is about the dorsal auditory-motor speech interface. This network is part of a larger system involved in auditory, speech, and language processing that is roughly organized into two main streams, referred to as the dorsal and ventral streams, corresponding to their locations on the lateral cortex. The chapter reviews the organization of the broader dual stream context, including its historical foundation. It then turns to recent progress in mapping the dorsal stream and understanding its computational basis. A current hypothesis is that the dual stream supports speech production via a feedback-control mechanism. This line of research offers the hope of integrating psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and motor control research.
