CLOCK gene may hold answers to human brain evolution

(UT Southwestern Medical Center) A gene controlling our biological clocks plays a vital role in regulating human-specific genes important to brain evolution. The findings from the O'Donnell Brain Institute open new paths of research into how CLOCK proteins produced by the CLOCK gene affect brain function and the processes by which neurons find their proper place in the brain.
