Facial apraxia, as well as aphasia, has been associated with lesions in the cerebral hemisphere contralateral to the dominant hand. We describe a patient with severe facial apraxia caused by contusion in the right frontal operculum, premotor area...

Apraxia of speech (AOS) is a rare, but well-defined motor speech disorder. It is characterized by irregular articulatory errors, attempts of self-correction and persistent prosodic abnormalities. Similar to aphasia, AOS is also localized to the do...

A number of studies have compared the speech of subject...

Background: Audio-visual speech perception mechanisms provide evidence for a supra-modal nature of phonological representations, and a link of these mechanisms to motor representations of speech has been postulated. This leads to the question if a...
