<b>Background.</b> The article discusses various approaches to describing the processes of sound pronunciation. Works in the field of neuroscience and speech therapy provide comprehensive descriptions of sound pronunciation. However, they are rarely combined in a multidisciplinary approach to address issues of sound production and correction. 
<b>Objective.</b> The article seeks to describe interdisciplinary approaches to the problem of sound pronunciation, as well as to present examples of integrative approaches to the correction of sound pronunciation. 
<b>Results.</b> The paper analyzes various models of sound pronunciation, developed in Russia and abroad. The concepts of phoneme and kinakeme, the processes of syllable fusion are considered. The article presents examples of research and the theory of constructing the articulatory basis of speech activity, provides examples of neurocognitive technologies applied in correcting sound pronunciation. 
<b>Conclusion.</b> The paper describes the role of modern network models in describing sound production. On the basis of the analysis, psychophysiological and logopedic characteristics of sound production were presented. Examples of modern neurocognitive technologies to correct pronunciation in the work with speech disorders are presented.
