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.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the University of Sydney's Faculty of Health Sciences have a unique opportunity to gain hands-on research experience as part of a new scholarship program.
Could you explain years of intense research about a specific area in just three minutes? That's what Health Sciences students did at the annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition at Cumberland campus.
Cumberland campus played host to aspiring artists on Tuesday night in the annual Occupational Therapy Art Exhibition.
