    Default Memories Can Be Passed Down Through Generations In Our Genes

    New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations.

    According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of psychiatry at Emory University, said: ”From a translational perspective, our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.

    “Such a phenomenon may contribute to the etiology and potential intergenerational transmission of risk for neuropsychiatric disorders such as phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.”

    I got the 23andme gene testing done and found out that I have a gene for empathy/optimism and also the 'warrior' gene. I also have the gene that makes cilantro taste like soap LOL!

    I am so glad to hear that. It's so comforting to know that millions of people share a gene with me!
