169 – Speech Motor Control

This application note provides an analysis example that shows how the MP System (with MP150 or MP100) can be used to investigate processes of speech motor control in normal speech production, as well as in individuals with various types of speech disorders (e.g., stuttering, dysarthria, apraxia of speech). The MP System allows the researcher to collect a number of different signals, that are commonly acquired and analyzed in studies regarding the neuromotor processes underlying normal and disordered speech production (e.g., kinematic, electromyographic, and electroglottographic analyses).  

For suggestions on recording and strain gauge requirements, please review Clinical Management of Sensorimotor Speech Disorders, edited by Malcolm Ray McNeil or similar references.

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
