The role of long noncoding RNAs in human cognition

The ratio of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) to protein coding genes increases with

the complexity of the organism, raising the hypothesis that lncRNAs play an important

role in the evolution of the human organism. In this study, I will functionally annotate

lncRNAs associated with intellectual disability in order to identify novel genetic

networks involved in human cognition.
