I study how brains initiate spontaneous actions and how experience with the consequences of these actions shapes future behavior.


3 What is the function of FoxP in operant self-learning?
Open for Review
Nov. 18, 2015  —  The Forkhead Box P2 (FOXP2) transcription factor is the first gene discovered to be specifically involved in the development of speech and language. Recent studies in birds, mice and fruit flies have shown that the gene exerts this involvement via its conserved function in a particular form of op...
