How the brain repairs stuttering.
Stuttering is a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with left inferior frontal structural anomalies. While children often recover, stuttering may also spontaneously disappear much later afterExpand

The nature and treatment of stuttering as revealed by fMRI A within- and between-group comparison.
UNLABELLED This article reviews some of our recent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies of stuttering. Using event-related fMRI experiments, we investigated brain activation duringExpand

Cortical plasticity associated with stuttering therapy.
UNLABELLED Neuroimaging studies have indicated that persistent developmental stuttering (PDS) may be associated both with an abnormality in white matter of left-hemispheric speech areas and aExpand

Speaking-related changes in cortical functional connectivity associated with assisted and spontaneous recovery from developmental stuttering.
We previously reported speaking-related activity changes associated with assisted recovery induced by a fluency shaping therapy program and unassisted recovery from developmental stuttering (Kell etExpand

Reduced speech perceptual acuity for stop consonants in individuals who stutter.
PURPOSE In individuals who stutter (IWS), speech fluency can be enhanced by altered auditory feedback, although it has adverse effects in control speakers. This indicates abnormalities in theExpand

Two cortical representations of voice control are differentially involved in speech fluency
Recent studies have identified two distinct cortical representations of voice control in humans, the ventral and the dorsal laryngeal motor cortex. Strikingly, while persistent developmentalExpand
Fluent speech: neural basis of sensorimotor plasticity in developmental stuttering
Developmental stuttering is a fluency disorder with anomalies in the neural speech motor system. Fluent speech requires multifunctional network formations. Currently, it is unclear which functionalExpand
