Some neuroscientists think a mutation led to human language development

Neuroscientists identify key role of language gene

Excerpt: “Neuroscientists have found that a gene mutation that arose more than half a million years ago may be key to humans’ unique ability to produce and understand speech.”

Excerpt: “…the gene that allowed us to speak may have something to do with a special kind of learning, The gene was first identified in a group of family members who had severe difficulties in speaking and understanding speech, and who were found to carry a mutated version of the Foxp2 gene.”

My comment:  See: RNA and dynamic nuclear organization. RNA-mediated events are biophysically constrained, which means they are a biologically plausible way to link the physics and chemistry of amino acid substitutions and protein folding to increasing organismal complexity via molecular biology.

RNA-mediated events associated with nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions can also be compared to unknown evolutionary events that might automagically arise in the context of an alternative theory about constraint-breaking mutations and natural selection without RNA-mediated events.

What theory suggests a mutation led to amino acid substitutions and a disorder of language development in one small group of humans, but also links a mutation to the increased organismal complexity of the human brain via the conserved molecular mechanisms of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions that differentiate cell types in species from microbes to man?

Who believes in the pseudoscientific nonsense of mutations, natural selection, and the evolution of biodiversity, which can be compared to the biological fact that ecological, social, neurogenic and socio-cognitive niche construction are RNA-mediated events — not undescribed evolutionary events?

About James V. Kohl 1308 Articles
James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones. Recently, Kohl integrated scientific evidence that pinpoints the evolved neurophysiological mechanism that links olfactory/pheromonal input to genes in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain that is primarily involved in the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, and in the development of human sexual preferences. His award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by disinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for neuroscience, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for social science. Kohl has worked as a medical laboratory scientist since 1974, and he has devoted more than twenty-five years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and the development of human sexual preferences. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people.
