Episode 4: Trauma & Epigenetics

In Episode #4: Trauma & Epigenetics, Matt, Curt, and Jerry explore the topic of epigenetics. Genetics is the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in living organisms.  Epigenetics is the field of research that examines alterations in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in DNA sequence.  This relatively recent field of study suggests additional mechanisms through which experiences can directly influence traits passed on from parents to children.  Epigenetics expands our understanding of factors influencing heritability to include behavioral patterns, and environmental conditions.
