It's all in the wrist
Neandertal FoxP2, human too

Bat FoxP2

Finally, I'm catching up on the bat FoxP2 news. The FoxP2 gene appears to be crucial in humans, quite possibly for the role it played in language evolution. It looks like human FoxP2 changed as a result of adaptation, and so now does FoxP2 in bats. FoxP2 in bats may have changed because of echolocation. A simple link here and more to come. PLoS One.
