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 and the regions thought to be causally involved in stuttering. 67 more words
