Please join the Behavioral Neuroscience Journal Club for a discussion of Epigenetics and Behavior, led by Robert Hinrichsen (Biology), on February 10 at noon in room 118 Uhler.
The role of the DNA sequence as a molecular mechanism for heredity and inheritance is commonly understood, but, as we have learned more about the function of DNA in the last several decades, it has become clear that other molecular effectors exist that have the potential to produce heritable changes.
Hinrichsen will review some of the known epigenetic mechanisms and will describe several recent studies that highlight epigenetic influences on behavior.
The discussion is open to all members of the IUP community—please join us!
