Notes


Epigenetics ("Epi" = Over) - Gene expression


Introduction to Epigenetics - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aAhcNjmvhc


"There is also a section of Epigenetic expressions that are affected by our choices and environment. We have power over which of our genes express themselves and which of our genes are silenced."


Examples:

Exercise and Addiction - A 2018 study published in Frontiers of Psychiatry found that a group doing moderate exercise 5 days a week for 30 minutes experienced epigenetic changes that reinforced abstinence from alcohol - https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyt.2018.00594/full#h3


Mother to Child - A 2016 article published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry found an association between maternal diet and methylation of genes associated with hyperactive symptoms - https://acamh.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/jcpp.12589


Father to Child - A 2014 study published in the journal, Nature Neuroscience found that epigenetic markers associated with metabolic and behavioral were passed on from father to child - https://www.nature.com/articles/nn.3695


"The good news is you can change! If your genes can be switched in ways that are unhelpful for you, they can also be switched back."


Genotype + (Actions + Environment) = Phenotype
