The neural basis of stuttering has to do with the integration of auditory information with speech-production commands. Previous studies show that stutterers’ produce a weaker-than-normal compensatory response while processing auditory feedback during speech. In this study they manipulated auditory feedback in order to see if weak compensatory responses are due to problems hearing feedback or using feedback. What they found is that stutterers’ have no difficulty hearing feedback, which narrows it down to functional areas responsible for using feedback ..or those areas responsible for translating performance-to-target feedback into corrective speech-action commands [link]
