Sensorimotor Control of Speech Production: Models and Data

Joseph S. Perkell

Speech Communication Group, Research Laboratory of Electronics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

A theoretical, model-based overview of speech production is described in which the goals of phonemic speech movements are in auditory and somatosensory domains and the movements are controlled by a combination of feedback and feedforward mechanisms. Examples of experimental results are presented that provide support for the overview.
