The Epigenetics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) comprises of a range of neurodevelopmental disorders characterised by social/communication deficits as well as repetitive/restrictive interests or behaviours. Currently, the exact causes of ASD symptomology is far from being understood. This is, in part, due to the complex and multifactorial nature of the disorder. Despite such complexities significant progress to understanding the … Continue reading The Epigenetics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Moms Exposed to Lead May Impact DNA Methylation of Her Children and Grandchildren

Evidence supporting multigenerational epigenetic inheritance continues to mount as a group of researchers discover that mothers who have a significant amount of lead present in their blood can epigenetically impact not only their unborn children, but their grandchildren as well. The study was published in Scientific Reports. It is well known that children in the womb … Continue reading Moms Exposed to Lead May Impact DNA Methylation of Her Children and Grandchildren

Affectionate Moms with Depression May Epigenetically Buffer Their Child from Stress

Different environmental factors experienced by a child can undoubtedly impact their life in the long run. Whether they were born into poverty, lack access to education, or are surrounded by violence, these experiences have the ability to dramatically disrupt their lives if they’re without the right support system. But, could a mother’s exposure to stress … Continue reading Affectionate Moms with Depression May Epigenetically Buffer Their Child from Stress

Prenatal Maternal Stress Triggers Distinct DNA Methylation Signatures in Ice Storm Babies

The Quebec Ice Storm of 1998 was a devastating time that plunged more than 3 million Quebecers into frigid darkness without electricity for as long as 45 days. Now, more than 15 years later, researchers from McGill University and the Douglas Mental Health University are finding out that the length of time a pregnant woman … Continue reading Prenatal Maternal Stress Triggers Distinct DNA Methylation Signatures in Ice Storm Babies

Epigenetic Transfer of Nutrition ‘Memory’ Ends Before Great-Grandchildren

A child is at an increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes and obesity if his or her mother was undernourished during pregnancy. This risk is caused in part by epigenetic changes thought to persist through generations, but it’s uncertain at which generation these changes stop affecting offspring. Researchers at University of Cambridge give us … Continue reading Epigenetic Transfer of Nutrition ‘Memory’ Ends Before Great-Grandchildren

Parents Who Exercise Could Epigenetically Pass on Heightened Learning Ability to Their Children

Exercising your body and your brain are two ways to improve your own health. It’s well known that physical and mental activity can boost learning ability and reduce risk for diseases such as Alzheimer’s. But, could doing so also directly benefit your future children? New research in Cell Reports indicates that a child’s capacity for learning could … Continue reading Parents Who Exercise Could Epigenetically Pass on Heightened Learning Ability to Their Children
