Defect in non-coding DNA might trigger brain disorders such as severe language impairment

Genetic variation in the non-coding DNA could give rise to language impairments in children and other neurodevelopmental disorders including schizophrenia, autism, and bipolar disorder, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and Radboud University in Nijmegen found. Molecular Psychiatry publishes their work based on a new approach on March 14.

Bat genes could provide fresh clues about the neurobiology of human speech

Although humans are the only species with the ability to use sophisticated spoken language, some of the characteristic features of language are also present in the communication systems of other animals. A new study led by the Neurogenetics of Vocal Communication group at the MPI for Psycholinguistics shows that bats in particular could provide novel insights into the biological basis of human language.
