Abstract

This research will explore the neurologic pathways that occur before the initiation of speech. The basis for this project and the research component will include the electrical potentials along the speech production pathway. The subjects will be given a target consonant-vowel (CV), and their speech production will be recorded simultaneously with their neural activity. We will be attempting to record the electrical signals from the cortex. Subjects will be neurotypical. Benefits of this research will include an increased understanding of normal neuro-electrical properties of the speech production pathway. The clinical benefit will include understanding variations from the norm with application to neuro-motor disorders.
