Speech and Language Associated Genes: An Overview

admin March 1, 2013

The human capacity for vocal communication is unrivaled throughout the animal kingdom, though our genetic make-up only differs from our closest relatives by a percent or two. Researchers are beginning to unravel the neurogenetic pathways that enable this unparalleled capability for speech. Initial clues have been unearthed in the identification of genes associated with developmental… Continue Reading »


Unlocking Human MND Models:Do Skin Cells Hold the Key?

admin November 30, 2012

A matter of decades ago, the idea of turning a humble skin cell into a live, firing nerve cell would have seemed impossible; perhaps deemed the result of reading too many science fiction novels. Yet in a paper published earlier this year in PNAS, an international collaboration of researchers has done exactly this — essentially… Continue Reading »

Neurotrophin family signaling

admin June 11, 2010

The neurotrophin family of signaling factors comprise nerve growth factor (NGF), brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophins NT-3 and NT-4. These factors are involved in the differentiation and survival of neural cells. The best characterized receptors for these trophic factors are the tropomyosin-related tyrosine kinase receptors TrkA, TrkB, and TrkC, and a member of… Continue Reading »
