Abstract
The brain activation and anatomy differences seen in people who stutter is examined. The significance of right hemisphere overactivation and left hemisphere activation patterns, as well as pertinent gray and white matter differences are compared across research studies. Recent research on the connectivity of the basal ganglia, thalamus, and cortical circuit as it relates to the neural mechanism of stuttering are also discussed.
