All the genes that code for the brains activities
- will be identified in the next five years.
molecular pathways exhibited in certain type of behavior -- how it works and where in the genome the certain functions arise and are controlled or modulated -
30,000 genes in the human genome that are of 3 billion base pair sequences that code for identifiable amini acids or stop and go sequences
a technology of unique power and elegant simplicity
Monkey brain -- dopamine receptors -- disabling experimentation
rinal cortex receives and can block visual reception and recognition; visual cues are the cues used to adjust behavior
visually cued reward schedules -- to obtain rewards
They induced a direct injection of a DNA construct interfering with the D-2 dopamine receptor in the rinal cortex interfered with the monkeys visual cueing capacity to gain the desired (trained) reward.
molecular pathways underlying behavior
each expression has a molecular set of necessary chemical conditions to allow the process to transpire.
