Interactions between genetic and environmental factors determine direction of population lateralization
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):598-598 (2005)
|Abstract||Direction of the embyro's head rotation is determined by asymmetrical expression of several genes (such as shh, Nodal, lefty, and FGF8) in Hensen's node. This genetically determined head-turning bias provides a base for light-aligned population lateralization in chicks, in which the direction of the lateralization is determined by genetic factors and the degree of the lateralization is determined by environmental factors.|
