Silvia will host a seminar by Chris McManus on 9th March, 1-2Pm, Seminar Room 1
Why are most people right-handed but some are left-handed?
Abstract: Most people are right-handed, but about one in ten is left-handed. Handedness also relates Continue reading
We are inviting application for a PhD project aimed at characterising genetic variants associated with language disorders. This is a three year project funded by the Cunningham Trust. Email Silvia (firstname.lastname@example.org) for informal enquiries.

We are delighted to have contributed a chapter to a new book edited by Lesley Rogers and Giorgio Vallortigara. The book groups a collection of methods used to study laterality in different organisms. Our chapter describes recent advances in mapping genes contributing to human handedness and laterality.
Silvia has been interviewed by AcademiaNet about our work on dyslexia genetics. AcademiaNet is a portal aimed at highlighting the achievements of female researchers based across Europe. You can read the interview here.
Silvia will chair a symposium on language genetics at the forthcoming BNA2017 conference, Birmingham 10-13 March.. The aim of the symposium is to cover the most recent advances in language genetic research going from phenotype definitions to the functional dissection of genetic associations using different animal models. The symposium is sponsored by the Genetics Society.
