 Abstract: With recent dramatic advances in molecular methods, scientists are starting to decipher how our genome helps to build a language-ready brain. I will describe how language-related genes can provide functional windows into the critical neural pathways. Intriguingly, our first glimpses into the relevant mechanisms suggest that this capacity, while unique to humans, is built on neurogenetic systems that are evolutionarily ancient. I will illustrate this point by considering the private life of the FOXP2 gene.
