A PET study of the neural systems of stuttering
TLDR
Induced fluency decreased or eliminated the overactivity in most motor areas, and largely reversed the auditory-system underactivations and the deactivation of the speech production system, suggesting stuttering is a disorder affecting the multiple neural systems used for speaking.
Stuttered and fluent speech production: An ALE meta‐analysis of functional neuroimaging studies
TLDR
The phenomenon of efference copy is proposed as a unifying account of the pattern activation revealed within this ALE meta‐analysis of imaging studies of chronic developmental stuttering in adults, providing the basis for a stuttering system model that is testable and should help to advance the understanding and treatment of this disorder.
Imaging human intra‐cerebral connectivity by PET during TMS
TLDR
Non-inVASIVE imaging of human inter-regional neural connectivity by positron emission tomography (PET) during transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was performed, and inhibitory connectivity was observed in contralateral M1.
Stuttering and behavior therapy : current status and experimental foundations
No wonder you activities are, reading will be always needed. It is not only to fulfil the duties that you need to finish in deadline time. Reading will encourage your mind and thoughts. Of course,
Stuttering treatment research 1970-2005: I. Systematic review incorporating trial quality assessment of behavioral, cognitive, and related approaches.
TLDR
The most powerful treatments for adults, with respect to both speech outcomes and social, emotional, or cognitive outcomes, appear to combine variants of prolonged speech, self-management, response contingencies, and other infrastructural variables.
Brain correlates of stuttering and syllable production: gender comparison and replication.
TLDR
The findings strengthen claims that chronic developmental stuttering is functionally related to abnormal speech-motor and auditory region interactions and may be related to differences between the genders with respect to susceptibility and recovery from chronic stuttering.
Brain correlates of stuttering and syllable production. A PET performance-correlation analysis.
To distinguish the neural systems of normal speech from those of stuttering, PET images of brain blood flow were probed (correlated voxel-wise) with per-trial speech-behaviour scores obtained during
