Relics of the Big Bang

Thu, 2008-02-14 18:30 - 19:30
Adams Building : 3450 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0E8

Anna I. McPherson Lecture in Physics 2008 seminar. Guest speaker: Professor George Smoot, University of California, Berkeley, who was co-awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the blackbody nature and the anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background radiation. The cosmic microwave background radiation is a relic of the Big Bang, and the long-sought-after anisotropies in this radiation are the seeds on which gravity works to grow the galaxies, clusters of galaxies, and clusters of clusters which are observed in the universe today. In this public lecture, Prof. Smoot will give an overview of the view of the structure and early history of the universe which emerges from the recent observational results. In addition to his vigorous research activities, Prof. Smoot lectures extensively on cosmology and has co-authored a popular science book, "Wrinkles in Time."

From speech to gene: The KE family and the FOXP2

Fri, 2008-02-15 13:30 - 15:30
McIntyre Medical Building : 3655 promenade Sir William Osler Montreal Quebec Canada , H3G 1Y6

Dr. Faraneh Vargha-Khadem, professor of developmental cognitive neuroscience and head, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Unit, Institute of Child Health, University College London, as well as consultant in neuropsychology, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The turn of this century marks the discovery of the first gene associated with the unique human ability of speech and language. This discovery, proving that our ability to speak lies in our genes, was made possible through a series of neuropsychological, neuroimaging and genetic investigations of the large three-generational KE family, half of whose members are affected with a speech and language disorder. This lecture tells the story of how the gene, called FOXP2, was discovered, the brain circuitry that it supports, and some of the evidence regarding how and when it evolved. The lecture will also trace the implications of this particular aspect of our evolution for the development of human culture.
