No that's cool, that's not absolutely terrifying information at all...

If you read the article it tells you they were discovered in 2011 but were never contacted until now.

The epigenome is how the genome is folded and how certain parts of it are "activated" or "inactivated" by certain tags being placed onto parts of it. Essentially, it's how your way of living and personal experiences can alter your genetics.   
However, your epigenome can be inherited, so the way you're grandparents lived can affect you're life. There was a study on rats that showed that when a rat is brought up without parents, certain parts of its genome is turned off. Specifically, the parts that give it maternal instincts (and something else I forget about, you can google it pretty easily though, I learned it in my Bio class.)   
When the rats w/o maternal instincts had children, the children also had the same parts of their genes turned off at birth, but when some of them were raised with adoptive parents that still had the genes turned on, they slowly turned on in the rats themselves.   
It's the link between nature and nurture.

I thought they were thinking a certain something in you're brain (I can't for the life of me remember the name or what it is. Starts with an N though) that is responsible for cutting all the unnecessary connections in you're brain as you grow up was the issue. They did the experiment on mice, and the ones that they removed whatever it was had autistic symptoms.


It might be a gene, the thing it was, but that would mean they figured this out a few months ago, not this week or last

That missing piece has to be caused by something.

I figured out the genetic link to autism long ago. My brother has a severe case of autism where as he's 24 but thinks and acts like a 9 year-old, and then me, I have aspergers; A form of autism. (No it does not mean I am mentally handicapped like my brother -_- just buggin look it up.) All you gotta do is connect the dots.
User avatar #33 to #32 - fuzzyballs (07/14/2014) [-]
riiiight
