Epigenetics and transgenerational transfer: a physiological perspective

Description: This review discusses how the concepts of epigenetics and maternal effects both overlap with, and are distinct from each other, analyzes examples of existing animal physiological studies based on these concepts, and offers a construct by which to integrate these concepts into the design of future investigations in animal physiology.

Inverted Social Reward: Associations between Psychopathic Traits and Self-Report and Experimental Measures of Social Reward

Description: This article describes two studies of individuals with high levels of psychopathic traits. Study 1 explores what aspects of social reward are associated with psychopathic traits, and Study 2 administers these measures to a new group of participants along with two experimental tasks investigating monetary and social reward value.

Egg yolk environment differentially influences physiological and morphological development of broiler and layer chicken embryos

Description: This article investigates the effect of breed-specific yolk composition on embryonic broiler and layer chicken phenotypes, using an ex ovo, xenobiotic technique that allows the transfer of broiler and layer chicken embryos from their natural yolks to novel yolk environments.
