A discussion introduced by Dr Simon Fisher, Royal Society Research Fellow and head of the Molecular Neuroscience Group at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

This lecture will explain how a gene called FOXP2 can provide a unique molecular window into key neural pathways, allowing us to build bridges between genes, brains, speech and language.
