Using an apparatus devised to measure muscular tonus as indicated by the resistance offered to an unexpected blow against the back of the free swinging hand, the muscular tone of stutterers and non-stutterers was studied under several conditions. For stutterers the conditions were (1) silence, (2) stuttering, (3) normal unobstructed speech; for non-stutterers (1) silence, (2) normal speech.
