about

Epigenetic Shaping of Sociosexual Interactions: From Plants to Humansis the first attempt to interpret the higher social functions of organisms. This volume covers an extraordinarily wide range of biological research and provides a novel framework for understanding human-specific brain functions.

  • Covers an extraordinarily wide range of biological research
  • Provides a novel framework for understanding human-specific brain functions.
Daisuke Yamamoto was graduated from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in 1976, and earned his PhD in 1981 from Hokkaido University. He joined Mitsubishi Kasei Institute of Life Sciences as a researcher in 1980, and worked there until 1999. For two years from 1981, he was trained as a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern...

Editorial Reviews

Praise for previous volumes in the series: "Outstanding both in variety and in the quality of its contributions."--Nature "Can be highly recommended to geneticists, and biologists in general...will prove to be of high importance for the development of the science of genetics."--Science
