Content By: Connally, E. L., Ward, D., Pliatsikas, C., Finnegan, S., Jenkinson, M., Boyles, R., & Watkins, K. (2018). Separation of trait and state in stuttering. Human Brain Mapping, 39, 3109– 3126.

Course Description: Stuttering is a disorder in which the smooth flow of speech is interrupted. Individuals who stutter have structural and functional abnormalities in the speech and motor pathways. Determining whether functional differences reflect general traits of the disorder or are specifically related to the dysfluent speech state is important. The current study used a hierarchical approach to separate state and trait effects within stuttering. Researchers found that indicators of traits, states, and relative frequency of dysfluency in stuttering are potentially spatially separable factors. Future work should expand on the neural correlates of different dysfluent states. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to stuttering as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data be exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Course Outline:  

  • Read and understand Separation of trait and state in stuttering
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to stuttering and abnormal brain function in the speech and motor pathways   
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the article for any missed questions and to better understand the relationship between stuttering and brain chemistry
