Advances in digital electronics and transducer design have facilitated basic research concerning the response properties of neurophysiological control systems underlying speech production. Studies of orofacial sensorimotor integration during voluntary motor behaviors have shed new insight on the complex relations between brain and behavior. The objectives of the report are to describe the design and application of several specialized devices for transducing resultant forces in the lips, review the components of a precision servo mechanical stimulus generator, discuss the elements of the laboratory computer for data acquisition and stimulus control, and illustrate the utility of this technologic development in experimental studies of human perioral fine force control and reflex modulation.
