Emergence of Individuality in Genetically Identical Mice
- Article excerpt: "The molecular mechanisms driving individual differences in behavioral and neural plasticity await further study"My comment: The fact that these differences are nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled in species from microbes to man is of little relevance, since the differences could just as readily be attributed to mutations theory if there was a model for that. Indeed, if ever there is a model for that, it could be used to explain how mutation-driven evolution occurs. Thus, many theorists await further study of cause and effect in the context of behavioral and neural plasticity that is nutrient-dependent and pheromone-controlled.James V. Kohl
