Abstract: Aim and methods: The overall aim of this thesis was to explore the fine motor timing ability as manifested by speech motor and fine hand motor activity in persons with developmental stuttering or Parkinson’s disease, and in healthy adults. A test method for systematic comparison between speech motor timing and fine hand motor control was developed. The test comprises tasks involving finger tapping and syllable repetition of the syllable /pa/, with and without the support of a metronome in three ... more
