There is no cure or even permanent treatment, because the cause of stuttering remains unclear. It was long thought that stuttering is a psychological problem, but Catherine Theys at the University of Canterbury, thinks that stuttering is linked with differences in brain function. Veronika Meduna volunteers for an experiment

3:40 Fieldays at Mystery Creek - Forty-five years ago, the New Zealand National Agricultural Fieldays started as a way to connect rural farmers with urban businesses and it's been going strong ever since. It was become one of the key events on the agribusiness calendar. This year there are more than 1,000 exhibitors on 1400 sites at Mystery Creek in Hamilton. The New Zealand Contractors' Federation is holding it's Waikato Regional Excavator Competition at field days. Simon Payne is the Waikato branch president.
4:06 Chris Trotter and Lisa Scott are on The Panel today. Sir Peter Gluckman says the science is settled around fluoride. But there were a few scientists and doctors and dentists making representations to the Hamilton City Council when they banned it. The fallout from the Labour MPs deciding to accept Sky City's largesse at the rugby. The argument that holding big sporting events galvanises the young of the country to ditch the X-boxes and get fit... um, not so much. The itinerant guy being evicted from his little squatter's house in Timaru as winter grips, the fight night last night offering patrons unlimited booze, and the booze very limited at the Captain Cook Tavern, which as we've been saying closes its doors tonight.
