The key to science: experimental evidence

  If it disagrees with the experiment, it’s wrong! — Richard Feynman (1964) Two different experiments are among others from the Vosshall lab that show the theory of evolution is wrong. 1) This experiment links induced mutations in olfactory receptor…

Human Pheromones in Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology

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.

Epigentics and the baby connectome

There is no direct effect of non-olfactory/pheromonal sensory input of the environment that would explain gene activation and the intracellular interactions in neurons that might result in de novo gene expression, which is why the most likely driving force for increased primate intelligence appears to be odors associated with nutrition and pheromones associated with socialization.
