Unlocking the mystery of stuttering
Researchers from The Australian Stuttering Research Centre are launching a world first study to see if it's possible to detect whether a baby will go on to stutter in later life - well before they start to talk. They will scan newborns with a family history of the disorder to try and find transmission problems in the parts of the brain related to speech that are present in older children and adults who stutter.
