Human pheromones and autism spectrum disorders

Study shows gene defect’s role in autism-like behavior

August 10, 2012 in Autism spectrum disorders

Excerpt: “The research showed that, when defective, pten’s protein interacts with the protein of a second gene known as p53 to dampen energy production in neurons. This severe stress leads to a spike in harmful mitochondrial DNA changes and abnormal levels of energy production in the cerebellum and hippocampus — brain regions critical for social behavior and cognition.”

My comment:

It will be interesting to see how much longer it is before researchers link p53 to the diet-responsive hypothalamic gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) neurogenic niche. The epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals, endocrine disruptors, and pheromones on GnRH are more clearly viewed in the context of the genetically predisposed development of ASDs during the first two years of postnatal life in humans. That’s when the epigenetic effects of olfactory/pheromonal input have their most important developmental effects on GnRH and other hormones that affect behavior.

If I were a molecular biologist I would attempt to look at cause and effect as has been done in this article: Using perceptual signatures to define and dissociate condition-specific neural etiology: autism and fragile X syndrome as model conditions. I think, however, at this point, that the level of specialization required may be prohibitive in the context of modeling the development of atypical social behaviors.

My model suggests olfactory/pheromonal cause, but the current focus on oxytocin and social bonding makes it clear that few people are interested in the role that pheromones play in the development of human behavior. For example, I haven’t heard any of the oxytocin researchers mention how its release is centrally controlled.

Yet, here we have mice that might otherwise help us sniff out more information about cause and effect relationships that link sensory input directly to behavior and to disorders of behavioral development. See, for example:  Napoli E, Ross-Inta C, Wong S, Hung C, Fujisawa Y, et al. (2012) Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Pten Haplo-Insufficient Mice with Social Deficits and Repetitive Behavior: Interplay between Pten and p53. PLoS ONE 7(8): e42504.

James Kohl owns Pheromones.com, and he has published books and award-winning research journal articles about human pheromones. With colleagues he was the first to show that a mixture of human pheromones increases the flirtatious behaviors of women, and increases their level of attraction to the man wearing the mixture - during a real-life social circumstance lasting 15 minutes.

What is the vomeronasal organ (VNO)?

The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a cone-shaped organ in the nasal cavity, which is believed to be one of the body's receptors of pheromones. More, specifically, the VNO, which is part of the accessory olfactory system in the nose, does not respond to normal scents, but may detect odorless, barely perceptible pheromones.

Other schools of thought believe that it is not the VNO but rather cells in our main olfactory system and their affects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus that are responsible for the affects of pheromones.

What are optimized pheromones?

Optimized pheromones are lab-certified pheromone formulations that have the optimum concentration of biologically active pheromones scientifically proven to produce behavior-altering results -- particularly as sexual attractants. Optimized pheromone formulations do not necessarily contain the maximum level of pheromones available on the market, but rather contain the greatest degree (and combination)of human pheromones that trigger a conditioned biological response in humans that, in turn, dictate their sexual behavior. Optimized pheromones also release neurotransmitters that directly modify the behavior of the opposite sex, such as triggering sexual excitement. For example:

Optimized pheromones for men are scientifically proven to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge elevates a woman's predisposition towards sexual activity.

Optimized pheromones for women are scientifically proven to bring about a biochemical surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This biochemical surge is what makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.
