Pg**spoiler alert** Hidden not because of spoilers, but just because it's more a note pad of favourite parts then a review.
Notes, interesting parts-
Pg 44 At least 15% of human females pose as a genetic mutation that gives them an extra (fourth) type of color photoreceptor- this allows them to distinguish between colors that look identical to the majority of us. Most people have 3types of color photoreceptors.
Pg77-78 umwelt is the part you are able to see and know (the environment or surrounding world) and the umgebung is the bigger reality - different animals in the same ecosystem pick up on different signals from their environment. Bats use echolocation, air-compression waves. Ticks are blind and deaf and use temperature and the door of butryric acid. Black ghostfish knifefish use electrical fields.
Each organism has their own umwelt. Like in the Truman show, when they wonder why he never realized that he world was constructed, "we accept the reality of the world with which we're presented".
Compared to the women with 4photoreceptors we're color blind.
They are tetrachromatic women.
Pg91 Women's preference can change depending upon hormones. They prefer masculine looking men while ovulating. When not ovulating prefer softer features.
Pg94 Strippers in study tipped an average of $52 an hour during fertile time of month. On $32 an hour during least fertile part.
Pg145 Keeping secrets is unhealthy for the brain after years of study they concluded that keeping the secrets caused more harm then the experienced trauma When they confessed or wrote down their secrets their health improved. Number of Dr visits went down, stress hormone levels decreased.
This is why strangers can be so candid on airplanes, while confessional remain popular.
Pg153 ADD LATER
pg158 Men, violence and crime related to genes, testosterone, good point. Just a gene shift.
Pg172 The shift from blame to biology No amount of ostracism will cure mental illness, but Florentine often helps depression, mania with lithium, etc. Mental problems are beginning to be approached as one might a broken leg.
Pg213 Long vs short allele Raised with peers vs raised with a mother Studies done with monkeys Long allele='good gene' that confers resiliency Good mothering somehow gives resiliency for those monkeys without =a combination of genetics + environment. Nature + nurture
Raised w peers. Raised w mother Short allele. Aggressive. Fine Long allele. Fine. Fine
Gene-environment studies in humans followed. Sort of Genes predispose you. But triggered by life events.
Pg 223 Every generation before us has believed themselves to have all the tools with which to decode the universe. They didn't. How likely is it that we do. (I've often said this, wondered about this, it's amazing and odd to personally see marking points)...more
pg-29- Mark Rosenzweig - rats in enriched environments had heavy brains. more glial cells, larger capillaries, an increase in enzymes involved in thepg-29- Mark Rosenzweig - rats in enriched environments had heavy brains. more glial cells, larger capillaries, an increase in enzymes involved in the sythesis & breakdown of neurotransmitters. desnser synaptic connections. a better brain
