Research has demonstrated that traumatic effects caused by a stressful experience can lead to epigenetic changes to gene activity; these changes can be passed on, and therefore result in behavioral changes in future generations.
In an international collaboration, researchers have determined that psychiatric disorders may have important molecular similarities that are not reflected in current diagnostic categories.
