This project investigates speech and language development and laterality in individuals who have an extra sex chromosome. The presence of an extra sex chromosome is known to increase the risk of neurodevelopmental problems but we do not know why. We are looking at differences within genes known as neuroligins to see if these may contribute to this effect.
Research Question: Does an increased dosage of NLGN4 modify the risk of neurodevelopmental difficulties?
