Informative Characteristics of Brain Activity to Diagnose Functional Disorders in People with Stuttering
The article presents the results of an experimental study of functional disorders of brain activity in people with stuttering. The experiment was carried out using functional magnetic resonance imaging. The purpose of this study was to identify the characteristics of brain activity in people who stutter and the formation of numerical indicators of the available functional disorders. The results of the comparative analysis of brain activity in the areas of Broca and Wernicke for two participants with stuttering and normal speech.
