Indeed, time, love, and memory (and thus learning) have become associated with specific fly genes.

Indeed, time, love, and memory (and thus learning) have become associated with specific fly genes. And these genes have counterparts in mammals, including humans. Benzer et al. are saying that behavior as well as the housekeeping rules that govern cellular metabolism get encoded in living organisms as products of evolutionary adaptation. But Weiner's great gift lies in explaining the science with you-are-there descriptions of lab life and personalities; reporting what scientists say and what they do. He provides telling anecdotes that reveal the humor, quirks, frustration, anger, and rewards of being a s.

Focusing on the genes that determine human behaviour, this book discusses how human beings' emotional responses can be genetically isolated and manipulated. The author also considers the political and social implications of this scientific breakthrough.
