Neuroanatomic studies reveal that the neocortical regions are also intricately interwoven with the “lower” levels of the system, and thus that our “higher thinking” is actually directly dependent upon activity of the entire brain, and indeed the entire body. The regions balancing and coordinating the state of activation of the brain’s subcomponents play an important role in the regulation of the body and emotions. It is an important and fascinating finding that those regions, such as the middle prefrontal cortex, that serve to regulate internal states are integrative in their functions and in their structural connections.

The fundamental mechanism of epigenesis is that neural firing can lead to the “turning on” or “expression” of genes that enable protein production. Protein production in turn creates structural changes, allowing neurons, for example, to form new synaptic linkages or to strengthen existing ones. Experience can also induce changes in the molecules on the chromosome that do not code for protein synthesis, but instead function to regulate the expression of the adjacent gene. Epigenetic changes induced by experience alter how and when genes are expressed, and thus have a powerful impact on neural connections.
