Prof. Daniel Geschwind seminar: Thursday 22nd April: “A framework for functional genomic investigation of human higher cognition”

From my colleague, Kevin Mitchell:

Hi all,

With any luck, Dan Geschwind will be visiting tomorrow and giving a seminar, in the TCIN building at 4pm.
Prof. Geschwind is a world-leader in the genetics and neuroscience of autism and in the study of the development and evolution of gene networks underlying human cortical structure and function and the evolution of human cognitive abilities, including language.  Please see below for a list of some of his papers related to the latter topics.
best wishes,
Kevin
