Both deletion and duplication of human chromosome 7q11.23 cause neurodevelopmental disorders with unique phenotypic profiles, so offering a window into the genetics of human behaviour, cognition and language. We use mouse models and the genetic analysis of human subjects to probe the underlying molecular basis of these disorders.
