New Foxp2 work points to gene networks in neurite outgrowth and vocalization learning: pretty but no suprising

Vernes SC, Oliver PL, Spiteri E, Lockstone HE, Puliyadi R, et al. 2011 Foxp2 Regulates Gene Networks Implicated in Neurite Outgrowth in the Developing Brain. PLoS Genet 7(7): e1002145. doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1002145.

From a different paper;

Gene targets of FOXP2. Genes targeted by human and chimp forms of FOXP2: Red lines show target genes that both species express in the same direction, while blue lines indicate target genes that the two species express in opposite directions. Bold text and large green circles denote the most connected genes. (Credit: Image courtesy of University of California - Los Angeles)
