Gene which sparked human brain leap found

6 posts in this topic

Scientists have identified the gene which may have driven the crucial step in evolution where man learned to talk.

By duplicating itself two and a half million years ago the gene could have given early human brains the power of speech and invention, leaving cousins such as chimpanzees behind.

The gene, known as SRGAP2, helps control the development of the neocortex – the part of the brain responsible for higher functions like language and conscious thought.
