Seed funding for `Genetic and Environmental Bases of Language Processing`

The NIDL Lab has a recieved an IBaCS seed grant to support research into how genetic and environmental factors contribute to the development of reading and language circuits. Parents play a major role in the development of complex traits,such as reading and reading disorder, in their offspring through genetically and environmentally mediated pathways. The human brain has regionally varying sensitivity […]
