One of the clearest examples of epigenetic effects

the honeybee model organism links the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemical-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution to genes, behavior, and back in species from microbes to man.

Insect to human cognition

Attempts to discuss the role of nutrient chemicals and pheromones in cognitive neuroscience discussion groups have met with outright hostility. So, let’s wait another week, month, or year until the convergence becomes perfectly clear.

The cause of colony collapse could be a message for all of us

“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.”
