Editorial Reviews

A selection of 62 reviewed papers on speech production as it relates to the other subjects. Combining theoretical and experimental studies, they explore models in speech production, methods and measurements in pathological speech, brain research, developmental aspects of speech production and fluency disorders, and other broad areas. The themes of speech motor control in stuttering and the assessment and developmental aspects of speech production in pathological speech have been carried over from earlier Nijmegen conferences. The collection is designed to be an authoritative text on the basic science of motor control in speech production, an introduction to the various new brain imaging techniques and how they are and can be used to study speech production, and a detailed account of the current studies. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
