Description: NIH Neuroscience Series Seminar

Dr. Jarvis lab is investigating the genes and molecular mechanisms underlying neural circuits related to learned vocal communication. Understanding the nervous system’s anatomical and functional pathways for information processing is critical to explaining complex behaviors such as singing and speaking. By unraveling aspects of vocal learning in birds and mammals, Dr. Jarvis and his team hope to shed light on speech disorders in humans and help restore some voices silenced by disability or disease.
