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.

fNIR Imaging Systems

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
