This study was an attempt to determine if the function of speech is controlled primarily by one of the two cerebral hemispheres. Cases of stuttering were chosen as the subjects. Approaches to the problem were made from several angles. (l) A brief case history was obtained. It had to do mainly with early manual dexterity, pre-school and early school training, onset of speech trouble, etc. (2) Tests for ocular dominance. (3) Tests for spontaneous mirror writing. (4) Tests for motor lead and (5) Studies of neuro-muscular action currents.
