  • Developmental stuttering is characterized by dysfluent speech that includes repetitions, blocks, and prolongations of speech sounds, and associated involuntary and/or ancillary movements. Converging evidence has shown neuronal activity is reduced in the auditory temporal cortex and increased in right hemisphere speech-motor control areas in Adults Who Stutter (AWS) [1-6]. These atypical patterns of neural activation may result in dissociations between auditory speech perception and motor… CONTINUE READING
