Current Research

We are exploring brain processes that lead to the development of stuttering in children and adults. By looking at functions and anatomy using state-of-the-art brain imaging, we can understand what factors  cause stuttering and, importantly, what we can do better in treatment. In a recent study (Beal, et al. 2013  published in Cortex) we found that there are significant differences in brain anatomy between children who do and do not stutter.
