Abstract and Keywords
The cognitive processes and neural mechanisms supporting language production have received considerably less research attention than those involved in language comprehension. This situation is partly attributable to the methodological challenges involved in acquiring electrophysiological and neuroimaging data during overt speech. However, current knowledge is increasing with the addition of lesion-symptom mapping studies in patients, and the application of novel brain-stimulation technologies. This chapter reviews findings from a range of studies investigating the spatial and temporal components of speech production in patients and healthy participants, with a particular emphasis on those employing psycholinguistic paradigms to identify and characterize core processes and components of the network involved in retrieving words from the mental lexicon.
Greig I. de Zubicaray is Professor and Associate Dean of Research in the Faculty of Health at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. His research covers brain mechanisms involved in language and memory and their disorders, neuroimaging methodologies, the aging brain and cognitive decline, and most recently, the emerging field of imaging genetics.
Vitória Piai is an Associate Principal Investigator at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour of Radboud University and Radboud University Medical pg xviiCenter. Her research focuses on language function in healthy populations as well as populations with speech or language impairment. She works with a range of behavioral and neuroimaging methods and pays special attention to the intersection of language and other functions, such as executive control, (semantic) memory, and motor control in the case of speaking.
