Behavioral and multimodal neuroimaging evidence for a deficit in brain timing networks in stuttering – a hypothesis and theory

The authors provide a theoretical framework for viewing stuttering as a disorder of timing. Evidence is reviewed from neuroimaging and brain stimulation experiments that show a great degree of overlap between the structures engaged in the internal timing of movements … Continue reading

Computational modeling of stuttering caused by impairments in a basal ganglia thalamo-cortical circuit

The authors examined the roles of dopamine excess and atypical white matter in stuttering, and observed that each abnormality causes stuttering by affecting the same basal ganglia-thalamus-left ventral premotor cortex; these neural abnormalities delay readout of the next syllable’s motor … Continue reading
