Genetics of language & social communication: Connecting genes to brain & cognition  

Research from several groups suggests that studying cognitive or behavioral components of autism, or endophenotypes may aid in identification of more homogeneous subgroups and hasten the identification of genetic loci underlying this condition. This study hypothesizes that speech and language related endophenotypes may underlie several of the suggestive or probable autism linkage peaks and worked in the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) sample to identify one major and several minor linkage peaks related to speech and language delay in autistic siblings in this large autism cohort (AGRE).
