What makes some brains stammer, and what makes some stammering brains different from others?

This lecture will provide an introduction to neuroscience generally, and use this knowledge to develop an understanding of brains that stammer. We will demystify neuroscience and take you beyond merely looking at colourful blobs and brainwaves. While the colourful blobs will certainly be there, much of the lecture will focus on understanding what they mean, and more importantly what they mean for brains that stammer.

Dr Michel Belyk


Dr Michel Belyk is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Edge Hill University. He studies the human voice, all the things that it says, and how it is able to say them.
