FOXP2

The "Language Gene," FOXP2, has been making regular appearances in the popular press and scholarly articles-so I thought it would be cool if I linked to this page, which has a short but detailed explanation about the gene. Interestingly, the author seems to feel Nick Wade underplayed the importance of the gene to the formation of general intelligence, as opposed to domain specific verbal skills. Of course, it seems the inability to communicate might cause problems in full expressing one's general intellectual capacities.
