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.

Keywords: speech production, psycholinguistics, picture word interference, semantic interference, phonology, fMRI, TMS, tDCS, EEG, MEG
