What Causes Stuttering with Dr. Soo-Eun Chang from the Speech Neurophysiology Lab at the University of Michigan (Ep. 568)
Dr. Soo-Eun Chang joins Peter Reitzes to discuss what causes stuttering from a brain imaging and brain research perspective. This is the fifth episode in a series on the cause of stuttering.
Dr. Chang discusses what brain research tells us or suggests regarding the structure and function of the brains of people who stutter, deficits in white matter tracts, how stuttering may relate to lysosomal dysfunction, persistency and recovery, how the right and left hemispheres interact and much more.
