Scientists have discovered new gene variants associated with stuttering



Scientists at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee and Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan have identified new gene variants associated with stuttering. The research results were published in The American Journal of Human Genetics and Human Genetics and Genomics Advances.

In an experiment, Shelley Joe Kraft, associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and head of the Behavior, Speech and Genetics Laboratory at Wayne State University, analyzed saliva and blood samples from more than 1,800 people with stuttering, including more than 250 families with three generations of stuttering. In addition, data were taken from the BioVU repository of genetic information.
