Gene-brain Interactions

Professor David Anderson discusses how genes, proteins, and the brain interact.
So, genes and proteins in the brain operate completely interdependently with one another, none of them is an isolated system, genes influence proteins, proteins influence the brain, the brain in turn feeds back on genes and influences their activity.
