Scientists believe that genetics can define social behavior15 октября, 2021
Scientists believe that the first impression of man, pleasant and no, can dictate genetics. They studied the behavior of mice with various genetic options and were convinced that each of them formed special social preferences for animals.
Understanding the nature of social preferences has important consequences for compatibility in relations, as well as for more efficient treatment of a number of diseases associated with atypical social behavior, scientists explain. For this reason, they began to study the potential of influence of genetics on social behavior.
From previous experiments, researchers knew that in mice without protein PDE11 there was a closed behavior. Now they found that the PDE11 is in the brain and its options can adjust the mood and behavior,
In other words, the genetic coincidence determined their preference to each other. According to the author of Michi Kelly, similar factors can determine social preference and in humans.
«It is likely that only the first one among many biomarkers of compatibility in the brain, which controls social preferences, added Kelly. — Further research will determine new factors compatibility in order to improve the quality of the personal life of people. «
On the other hand, an understanding of the nature of social preferences will help to find new opportunities for the treatment of diseases such as schizophrenia, the disorders of the autistic spectrum, dementia and others for whom atypical social interaction and avoiding contacts are characterized.
For example, from previous studies, it is known that strong social relations are very important for health, and social isolation
