Differential expression of glutamate receptors in avian neural pathways for learned vocalization.
(J Comp Neurol, 2004-08-09)
Learned vocalization, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait. It is found in three distantly related groups of birds-parrots, hummingbirds, and songbirds. These three groups contain cerebral vocal nuclei for learned ...
FoxP2 expression in avian vocal learners and non-learners.
(J Neurosci, 2004-03-31)
Most vertebrates communicate acoustically, but few, among them humans, dolphins and whales, bats, and three orders of birds, learn this trait. FOXP2 is the first gene linked to human speech and has been the target of positive ...
Avian brains and a new understanding of vertebrate brain evolution.
(Nat Rev Neurosci, 2005-02)
We believe that names have a powerful influence on the experiments we do and the way in which we think. For this reason, and in the light of new evidence about the function and evolution of the vertebrate brain, an international ...
