In experiments with mice it has been found that the way in which young mice are brought up has an influence on their DNA. This puts the question whether nature or nurture are more important in a new light: the genome is not fixed and the DNA of developing brain cells may be influenced by the upbringing. There is a speculation that certain medical conditions of the brain may be influenced this way as well.
