A molecular genetic perspective on speech and language

3:30pm-5:30pm, Mar 28, 2017

Beaty Biodiversity Museum, UBC
Series: 
Language Science Talks
Presenter: 
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.
