3:30pm: SEX CHROMOSOMES, LANGUAGE, AUTISM AND THE BRAIN: UNRAVELLING THE MYSTERY
The sex chromosomes differ for males and females: typically, men have an X and a Y chromosome, whereas females have two X chromosomes. However, some children are born with an extra sex chromosome, leading to females with trisomy X (XXX), and males with XXY or XYY chromosomes. In this talk I will consider how studying these children can throw light on the nature of language disorder and autism, which are far less distinct than is often assumed.
