Song Syntax in Bengalese finches: Molecular Mechanisms

 Why song syntax in so different in Bengalese finches and white-backed munias? We think there should be some genetic differences related with song syntax in the two strains of finches. By removing a part of the brain song system, we can simplify the complex syntax of the Bengalese finches and we think that may be the site where genetic changes occurred.

 To describe fully what are different between the two strains of finches in terms of genetic compositions, we are planning to construct the Bengalese finch cDNA microarray. Ultimately, we hope to make suggestions as to what genetic changes occurred when we obtained our language.
