How your brain reacts to emotional information is influenced by your genes -- ScienceDaily

Your genes may influence how sensitive you are to emotional information, according to new research by a UBC neuroscientist. The study, recently published in The Journal of Neuroscience, found that carriers of a certain genetic variation perceived positive and negative images more vividly, and had heightened activity in certain brain regions.

How amazing, everything we feel is also linked to our DNA, I hope there will be much more research on this in the future. 05-14-2015 9:21pm

Well I think it suggests that our genes influence our perceptions of our reality and in turn then how we respond.  In many ways, we are "programmed".  Now the question becomes, can we change our programming or certain aspects of it? 05-15-2015 6:06am
