The future of neuro-epigenetics: an interview with Colum Walsh

Written by Stella Bennett

We recently featured the article, ‘The interplay between DNA methylation, folate and neurocognitive development’ from the journal Epigenomics. The field of epigenomics is rapidly expanding: in the article the authors discuss the major events in human fetal brain development and review the classes of genes targeted by methylation and linked to neurological and behavioral development. In this interview, conducted by our colleagues at EpigenomicsNet, we speak to one of the paper’s authors, Colum Walsh, Professor of Genetics and Group Leader of the Genomic Medicine research group at Ulster University, UK. Colum discusses the epigenetic links between folate supplementation and fetal...
