Question 1557 Epigenesis
Group Assignment 2 Review the definition and example of epigenesis in the text. Next, create two scenarios—one that would likely enhance gene expression and one that would likely dampen gene expression. For example, providing an economically at-risk preschooler with intensive early intervention promotes cognitive, social, and emotional growth, which translates into better academic performance and peer relations on entering school, thereby transforming gene expression. In contrast, not providing the same preschooler with early intervention and denying that child appropriate environmental stimulation can dampen gene expression so severely that later intervention has little impact. As this example illustrates, environment–gene exchanges can contribute to vastly different outcomes in the same child. Create one scenario for a child and another for an adult. For this assigment you will need to acess chapter 2 to form your scenarios. I will provide you with the link to the book
