Abstract and Keywords

This chapter supports the view of a coherent system interlacing the phonological network implicated in speaking with the central motor system controlling articulation. A pivotal role in this system is played by the left posterior-inferior frontal area, which is dedicated to the planning of speech motor patterns for syllables and words. This area constitutes the front end of an auditory-motor integration network and at the same time provides input to the speech motor execution system. Within this gross architecture, multiple interactions between subsystems take place. Moreover, the speech motor pathways are modulated by information from limbic structures by the basal ganglia and the supplementary motor area and receive sensory feedback from temporal and parietal cortex. Through these interconnections, speech movement control is influenced by the speaker’s internal emotional and motivational state and by the sensory consequences of his or her speech motor activity.

Keywords: speech, phonology, motor, dorsal stream
