Speech Production, Neural Basis of

Juliana V. Baldo, Nina Dronkers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent evidence has determined that numerous brain regions play a vital role in speech production. These regions include both cortical and subcortical areas, as well as white matter tracts. This article reviews research from studies in neurologic patients as well as functional neuroimaging studies with healthy individuals that delineate the neural networks underlying the planning and execution of articulatory movements.
