Gene tied to language disabilities

"It has long been suspected that inherited factors play an important role in childhood language disorders," said Dr. Simon Fisher, a Royal Society Research Fellow at the Wellcome Trust Centre, who led the research. "But this is the first time that we have been able to implicate variants of a specific gene in common forms of language impairment." Yahoo!/Reuters
