Neue Studie liefert Argumente für Lamarckismus

Versuche mit Mäusen belegen, dass es tatsächlich möglich ist, Erfahrungen vom Gehirn auf das Genom zu übertragen und an nachfolgende Generationen weiterzugeben. Es spricht also einiges dafür, dass nachdem der genetische Determinismus duch neuere Forschung zu epigenetischen Mechanismen widerlegt wurde, nun auch der Lamarckismus rehabilitiert werden muss.

” In the study, which is published in the journal of Nature Neuroscience, the researchers trained mice to fear the smell of cherry blossom using electric shocks before allowing them to breed.

The offspring produced showed fearful responses to the odour of cherry blossom compared to a neutral odour, despite never having encountered them before.

The following generation also showed the same behaviour.”
