A molecular genetic perspective on speech and language
3:30pm-5:30pm, Mar 28, 2017
Beaty Biodiversity Museum, UBC
Language Science Talks
Dr. Simon E. Fisher, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
The rise of molecular technologies has yielded exciting new routes for studying the biological foundations of language. In particular, researchers have begun to identify genes implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders that disrupt speech and language skills. Simon E. Fisher will illustrate how such work can provide powerful entry points into critical neural pathways.
