General Information

The workshop focuses on issues that are extremely topical in evolutionary biology and cognitive science, and will host broad discussions aimed at a non-specialized and interdisciplinary audience. How epigenetic phenomena affect brain and cognitive development in normal and pathological conditions? Can these phenomena be passed through generations, possibly changing evolutionary paths?
