New paper: Identification of candidate genes for developmental colour agnosia in a single unique family
Previous research had already described a unique family with several members with mild to severe colour agnosia. With a great team, we investigated the potential genetic basis of this developmental disorder. Although it was an explorative study, the small set of candidate genes could serve as a starting point for unraveling mechanisms of higher level cortical functions and specialization.
