With contributions from world-renowned researchers, Speech Motor Control in Normal and Disordered Speech: Future Developments in Theory and Methodology provides an in-depth overview of the state-of-the-art speech motor control research. The book is co-edited by Dr Hayo Terband (Language processing and language pathology).

The book is divided into 5 sections: Perception–Action, Speech Development, Speech Disorders, Modelling of Speech & Windows on the Brain. In addition, the authors have focused on practical application, demonstrating how the insights from research can be used to guide and inform decisions on clinical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.
