New findings challenge established views on human genome

...earchers still must learn how to read the manual’s language so they can identify every part and understand how the parts work together to contribute to health and disease. In recent years, researchers have made major strides in using DNA sequence data to identify genes, which are traditionally defined as ...

Putting feelings into words produces therapeutic effects in the brain

...however, Lieberman said. “We typically think of language processing in the left side of the brain; however, this effect was occurring only in this one region, on the right side of the brain,” he said. “It’s rare to see only one region of the brain responsive to a high-level process like labeling emotions.”...

Researchers discover genetic cause for word-finding disease

.... "Here is a disease that specifically attacks the language part of the brain on the left side. What makes it so specific? How does the disease target the language areas?" "This finding will help us explore not just what causes the disease but the uniquely iden...

Severe mental retardation gene mutation identified

... Some patients require total care and may not have language ability. The condition runs in families and only affects the male offspring. So far only a few of these genes have been identified. Working through a large, international collaboration, the researchers collected genetic samples from 250 famili...

Mysterious 'neural noise' actually primes brain for peak performance

...the human cortex," says Pouget. "The way you learn language must be essentially the same as the way a doctor reasons out a diagnosis, and right now our lab is pushing hard to find out exactly how that noise makes all these different aspects of being human possible." Pouget's work still has its skeptics, but...

"If you are reading something, language areas oscillate in theta frequency allowing high-gamma-related neural activity in individual neurons to transmit information," said Knight. "When you stop reading and begin to type, theta rhythms oscillate in motor structures, allowing you to plan an...
