Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The idea that brain activity can impact the fate of the progeny goes against a central tenet of biology. Posner et al. describe an RNA-based mechanism for how neuronal responses to environmental cues can be translated into heritable information that affects the behavior of progeny.
