New paper

Our new paper exploring possible links between handedness and mathematical abilities is out in Laterality. A free version is available here.

Congratulations Angela!!!

Many congratulation Angela in passing your viva with minor corrections. Very sad to miss hugs and proper celebrations , but very happy and proud of your achievement!

New preprint!

Check out our new preprint reporting a meta-analysis to understand handedness frequencies in twins for which Judith Schmitz in our lab led the analysis. Another great collaboration with Sebastian Ocklenburg (Ruhr University Bochum) and Marietta Papadatou-Pastou...

First 2021 preprint

We are happy to share our first preprint of 2021 out in medRxiv reporting our latest work on language genetics. See this twitter explainer if you would like to find out more about this work.

PhD opportunity

Opportunity to a PhD to study the origin handedness. Apply to this project in collaboration with Prof Andy Gardner, School of Biology. Deadline 5th January. More details at this link

New paper

See the latest consortium paper reporting the results for a dyslexia GWAS. Although single associations were not identified, the study demonstrates how similar genetic backgrounds contributed to different traits and disorders. The study was led by Alessandro Gialluisi...

Work with us: New PhD project

Apply for this fully funded 4 years PhD scholarship to be part of new exciting collaboration between the University of St Andrews and Canon Medical Research Europe. The project The field of genomics has made huge advances for a number of diseases for which large...

New paper out!

Check out our new paper out today in Scientific Reports. This is a collaboration led by Julian Packheiser and Sebastian Ocklenburg at the Ruhr University in Germany looking at patterns of footedness and handedness.

New preprint!!

See new preprint in bioRxiv led by Judith reporting the first GWAS for hearing threshold and hearing asymmetries in children. See also a summary of the paper in this excellent Twitter thread.

Two new handedness papers

Two new handedness studies are now out. In the first one we examined different handedness measures in the ALSPAC cohort. In the second paper we looked at the prevalence and heritability of handedness in Hong Kong.
