A newly discovered hypothalamic neurogenic niche in the brain

The authors are among many, who seem to have missed a likely epigenetic link from maternal and/or acquired ferritin deficiency to thyroxine transport, brain development, and behavior.

A Dictionary of Animal Behavior, Ecology and Evolution (excerpt)

A single note accurately represents what is known about the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemical-dependent (i.e., glucose-regulated) survival, growth, and the advent of sexual reproduction in microbes like yeasts. It extends my model from microbes to man via the common molecular mechanisms

The same neural mechanisms are at work in worms and humans

a molecule similar to GnRH is essential to nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled reproduction in all species, including C. elegans.

Pheromonemotionally speaking

Patisaul et al (2012) makes it clearer the “The role of oxytocin, for example, must be explained in the context of how pheromones, food odors, and endocrine disruptors epigenetically effect sociosexual behavior.”

Unconscious affects on incalculable genomic interactions

Kudos to them for moving us forward and away from random mutations theory to an era where geneticists and neuroscientists can examine sensory cause and effect in the proper perspective of an epigenetic continuum of unconscious affects on genomic interactions…

Human pheromones and autism spectrum disorders (2)

The epigenetic effects are on interactions among all the other neuronal systems and hormone secretion that interact with the GnRH neuronal system, which is central to all developmental differences in the brain of males and females.

Human pheromones and diet-mediated life-extension

…yeast cells managed to evolve into intelligent mammals, which means there is still hope that your co-workers might do so through the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones.
