In General

In August 2002, researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, identified the gene (FOXP2) that gives humans control over muscles of the mouth and throat. They reported that this gene's mutation may have occurred about 200,000 years ago, and that it differs from that of chimpanzees by just two molecules. (113)
