How Humans Learn Language: Neural Connectivity and Genes

How the brain produces, perceives, and learns a language forms the research focus of Dr. Erich Jarvis, Professor, Rockefeller University. By observing how songbirds learn vocal behavior, Jarvis draws parallels to understand the neural connectivity of human vocal learning. He goes on to add how advances in imaging techniques and genetic discoveries have propelled the field of language research.
