ACADEMIC RESEARCH

Genomics Research is going strong:

🌎 GENETICS, GENOMICS & EPIGENETICS

Individual Genes/SNPs:

● One third of white men and 60% of black men have the so-called “warrior gene.” A more extreme version of the gene affects 5% of black men, less than one percent of white men. http://bit.ly/1qZG6jX (Wikipedia)

● Forty percent of American women and men have the “love gene.” This gene is key to bonding and predicts whether people will be ‘naturally’ good parents. Fifteen percent lack this gene on both chromosomes. http://bit.ly/1A4CNwD (PNAS)

● A stunning 70% of people do not have a gene that predicts that they will learn from their mistakes [hear that Lizzie?]. http://bit.ly/1qag7v1 (SNPedia)

Who should have access to this information on an individual basis? Doctors, patients, future parents, educators, counselors? The government?

SciAm: Can Fear Be Erased? http://bit.ly/1ys9K7Z Hormone and gene therapies for anxiety and PTSD could be on the way //➔ oxytocin, “love hormone”
// 12/4/2014, “…the goal was simple: administer a hormone into the noses of 62 men in hopes that their fear would go away. And for the most part, it did.
“The hormone was oxytocin, often called our “love hormone” due to its crucial role in mother-child relationships, social bonding, and intimacy (levels soar during sex). But it also seems to have a significant antianxiety effect. Give oxytocin to people with certain anxiety disorders, and activity in the amygdala—the primary fear center in human and other mammalian brains, two almond-shaped bits of brain tissue sitting deep beneath our temples—falls.”
