A new study challenges how we think about how humans acquired language. The study found no evidence that recent, human specific selection occurs for the FOXP2 gene in relation to language development
Researchers discover that a genetic mutation which arose over half a million years ago could be key to humans' ability to understand and produce speech.
A gene implicated in human speech disorders and epilepsy is also required for vocalization and synapse formation in mice, researchers discover.
Researchers show how two molecules regulate a gene implicated in speech and language impairments, as well as ASD.
