“Traditionally, stuttering is thought of as a problem with how someone speaks, and little attention has been given to the complex interactions between neurological systems that underlie speaking,’ says Christine Weber-Fox, an assistant professor of speech sciences who is interested in the brain’s involvement in language processing.”

That is true. But this research study did not accomplish that task.



“We have found differences in adults who stutter, compared to those who don’t, in how the brain processes information when people are thinking about language but not speaking. For example, there was a significant delay in response time when subjects were given a complex language task. We also found that in people who stutter, certain areas of the brain are more active when processing some language tasks.’”



Besides not being aware of what language is or how it is created within the brain or in what manner it is outputted to become a voiced sound, the researchers have deduced that language is a thing unto itself. They are assuming that since language is a thing that comes from the brain that it therefore comes from language. Nothing the brain does comes from what it does. Nothing in the brain is processed any differently than any other thing that comes from the brain. Concentrating on what it is that happens instead of what is happening to make it happen has hampered neuroscience ever since the first person wondered what it was that caused what they wondered about.



It has become accepted protocol to assign areas of the brain to specific functions. That is false as well as true.



It has become accepted protocol to do the worst form of science as standard procedure: to observe and impose the observance upon what is being observed.



If cars were evaluated by what observation would dictate then a car would move forward from its forward motion center. A car would move backward from its backward motion center. Its lights would come on from its forward light center, which has a connection, somehow, to its rear lights center. The gears would shift from its gear center which somehow affects both the forward and backward motion centers and in rare circumstances can be affected by either motion center. The tires are each a mobility center which are somehow connected to the motion centers but there is no indication that there is any relationship between the motion centers and the light centers other than the key center. Isn’t that a tad absurd?
