Notice the two genetic sets clearly vie with one another for supremacy as stem cells in controlling development. Basal brain stem cells, very important very early on in the child, activated for whatever reason, including drinking sodium lye at just the right age. They come from two different species and only one of them can win, unless they both interrupt development by competing ... as we have discussed here many, many times ...
Remarkably, they found that some of the same genes that influence human intelligence in healthy people were also the same genes that cause impaired cognitive ability and epilepsy when mutated, networks which they called M1 and M3.These genes can end up competing for amygdala development, the most critical structure at the centre of the brain, stifling it's development altogether, in which case you grow up to be a flaming liberal nutjob. Don't think the media could possibly spin this into anything else but what it is? Check out the headline on this article. The anterior cingulate is the Vanilla Ice of the brain. It's a joke. If your amygdala is missing but your anterior cingulate has developed in response to it's absence, you might as well have had somebody blow the middle of your head out with a shotgun at some point. Your brain cannot be considered to be anything but severely defective if the amygdala is missing. It is critical in hazard avoidance, the prime function of the mammalian and reptilian nervous system. It is like a doctor examined a child and declared "They are missing their eyes, ears, heart and lungs but are otherwise fine. They should do well without these larger 'primitive structures,' thank goodness."
|Liberals and left wing out-patients are proud of their anterior cingulates.|
Pity about the rest of the brain.
