Similar in stuttering??

I just read an article that discusses how inefficient information transfer between regions could be at the origin of autism.

Could this mechanism be at play in stuttering, too?

This article doesn't report any data on the origin of autism as the data stem from adult subjects.

Obviously, there are usually brain activity correlates to any psychological disorder. Psychological processes match brain processes. Therefore, yes, there are also brain activity correlates to stuttering.

Best, L.

Hi Jhong Ren!

Yes, I will a link to your blog.

I would be interested to know more about Asia and stuttering. If you could write a few lines, I could post it on my blog. I have regular visitors from Asia, so they might see your blog.

To L,

Brain studies only look at systematic differences between brain scans of the stuttering and non-stuttering group, so psychological processes are more or less filtered out.

Best wishes,
Tom
