Smelling the difference between young and old

Nutrient chemicals in the ecological niche calibrate individual survival, and the nutrient chemicals metabolize to pheromones in the social niche, which standardize and control reproduction in all species.

Passing On Stress

In species from microbes to man receptor-mediated changes caused by nutrient chemicals and pheromones alter intracellular signaling and stochastic gene expression.

Human Pheromones: extremely technical representation of the concept

…nutrient chemicals establish the ecological niche of different bacterial species and that nutrient calibrated receptor-mediated events link the metabolism of nutrients to pheromones that standardize and control speciation

Human Pheromones in Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology

The honeybee is a model organism for understanding the epigenetic link from food odors and social odors to neural networks of the mammalian brain, which ultimately determine human behavior.

They are what they eat, and so are we

Shall we use the honeybee as a model for the epigenetic effects of olfactory/pheromonal input across species from microbes to man?

Explaining a good theory

‘Animal models affirm that food odor makes food either appealing or unappealing. Animal models reaffirm that it is the pheromones of other animals that makes them either appealing or unappealing.”

Did viruses make mammals communicate with pheromones?

Perhaps viruses are calibrating all mechanisms for both individual survival and for speciation across all species. If so, shall we credit them for all of Creation? What then can be said for “The Language of God?” 1532 genes and interactions among them are required for sexual reproduction that involves the mammalian placenta.

Epigentics and the baby connectome

There is no direct effect of non-olfactory/pheromonal sensory input of the environment that would explain gene activation and the intracellular interactions in neurons that might result in de novo gene expression, which is why the most likely driving force for increased primate intelligence appears to be odors associated with nutrition and pheromones associated with socialization.
