How music may induce fluency (and dysfluency) in people who stutter

Abstract

A complicating factor in this theoretical issue is that symptoms of stuttering and dysfluency have also been observed in musicians playing wind instruments, sometimes called « musical stuttering ».

When sound becomes noise – a research perspective

 To perceive and produce sound is a magnificent capability that greatly facilitates and enriches human functioning. Sound, however, can quite easily turn into noise, or the other way around, a transition highly dependent on specific interaction between acoustical features, exposure context, and listener’s characteristics.

While there is growing evidence for the effect of rhythm on motor networks and for emotionally stimulating music on the reward system, we have yet to understand what happens in the brain when music spontaneously stimulates both movement and emotion.
