Species specificity in gene expression in the brain

Chemical ecology is, of course, responsible for adaptive evolution via ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction (i.e., brain development). How could anything else but chemicals (nutrient chemicals and pheromones) be responsible for similarities and differences in cell types of the brain in different species?

Social decision-making in vertebrates (Part 1)

The nutrients that organisms eat are metabolized to the pheromones they produce, which control social decision-making in all species.

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

Love is a receptor-mediated event: the pervasive influence of the late Robert L. Moss

The molecular biology of how nutrient chemicals calibrate the survival of individuals and how the metabolism of nutrients to pheromones that standardizes and controls species survival appears to link the nature and nurture of receptor-mediated behavioral development across species.

Creation of different species without physical barriers (Part Two)

Does anyone know how else to link the social environment directly to brain changes and behavior in invertebrates or vertebrates? In the honeybee and in rodents it appears that olfactory/pheromonal stimuli provide this direct link.

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.”

Misrepresentations of biologically based cause and effect:

…food odors and pheromones cause the electrical activation of genes in nerve cells of brain tissue. This links them directly to behavior via the required gene, cell, tissue, organ, organ system pathway (Kohl, submitted).
