The capacity for speech and language is a fundamental trait of humankind, but its genetic encoding is poorly understood. I will present a range of diverse but complementary approaches to study the genetic underpinnings of speech and language including; clinical studies that investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying speech and language disorders; neuromolecular studies that demonstrate how such genes influence neuronal development and function; and work in animal models linking gene function to behaviours relevant for speech and language
