Elucidating The Neural Pathways And Genetic Basis Of Speech

Grant number: DP120100285 | Funding period: 2012 - 2016

Completed

Abstract

The project will elucidate the biological basis of speech, a unique feature of the human condition. The project will do this by i) discovering genes associated with speech disorder and ii) defining the neural pathways associated with speech production. This study will address critical questions regarding gene, brain and behaviour relationships in speech.
