Numerous neurological patients suffer from speech and language disorders but the underlying pathomechanisms are not well understood. Imaging studies on speech production disorders lag behind aphasiological research on speech perception, probably due to worries concerning movement artifacts. Meanwhile, modern neuroimaging techniques allow investigation of these processes. This article summarizes the insights from neuroimaging on physiological speech production and also on the pathomechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease and developmental stuttering.
