2012-2014: Australian Research Council - Elucidating the neural pathways and genetic basis of speech

Principal Investigator: I Scheffer

This project aims to examine the neural pathways and genes that determine the mechanisms of speech production. The cross-disciplinary team will use large families with multiple affected members with speech disorder and apply (i) cutting-edge gene discovery methods as well as (ii) MRI techniques to result in the most comprehensive characterisation of neural pathways associated with inherited childhood speech disorder yet undertaken.
