Waiting “forever” for something to happen for the “first” time

Stochastic gene expression is not random; it results from nutrient chemicals like glucose entering the cell.

Society for Social Neuroscience Presentation scheduled 10/11/12

We incorporated what is currently known about the ability of chemical signals to condition behavior. This conditioning occurs via epigenetic effects that calibrate and standardize the molecular biology of intracellular signal transduction and stochastic gene expression

Genes not culture drive humans forward (an antithetical approach)

Epigenetic influences of nutrition and socialization on intracellular signalling pathways link epigenetic cause directly to gene activation and stochastic gene expression are required for genetically predisposed phenotypic changes in the body and behavior of organisms from microbes to man.
