Respiratory Control in Stuttering Speakers: Evidence from Respiratory High-Frequency Oscillations.
Denny, Margaret; Smith, Anne
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v43 n4 p1024-37 Aug 2000
This study examined whether stuttering speakers (N=10) differed from fluent speakers in relations between the neural control systems for speech and life support. It concluded that in some stuttering speakers the relations between respiratory controllers are atypical, but that high participation by the high frequency oscillation-producing circuitry in the brainstem during speech is not sufficient to disrupt fluency.
