Physiol Rev 19(1): 49-62

Stuttering impedes about one % of adults and a larger fraction of young people. It runs in families and must therefore depend upon a defective cerebral equipment, but no anatomical abnormality has been found correlated with it and its neurological mechanism is unknown. "Three principal types of therapy are employed, with many variants and amalgamations: a, the mechanistic school, which relies on speech exercises, but unwittingly uses a good deal of suggestion; b, the psychological schools, where repeated interviews are used to ease emotional tensions, but where incidentally much speech exercise comes in; and c, the neurological school where exercises aimed at correction of weaknesses of cerebral dominance are employed.".
