Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

This is cover of the book that has those character concept art pages. (Of course, I’m scanning those—Sycamore’s will post in an hour—and anything else that catches my eye! Tag will be “XY concept art”.) The book is primarily a strategy guide and the concept art is only a small part of the book, however.
Thought I’d post the cover/ISBN in case anyone has a burning need to buy it.
Hurray! You finally got it! Can’t wait for those Scans.
Also can’t forget, their are actual full body pics of all the NPC trainers in the book too I think, if you can possibly get zoomed in images of them.
Yep, I’ll be scanning those pages as well! I’ll probably post them once I get through the concept art (which there isn’t a ton of, sadly).
Day 10: Favorite Grass Type.
(Err second favorite— I’m saving Tropius for the 31st. BUT I do love egg Chespin all the same, not to mention I miss fall already.)
okay what is the deal with Diancie
why isn’t it Carbink’s evolution i’m so mad
This is a real panda!
China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos
The war mentioned in this theory should be one of the many wars that happened in the Kalos region!
