You may have inherited a high-sensitivity gene from your mother, and because the gene is dominant, you need only one copy of the gene to taste PTC. 5.

Neuroscience includes much that is relevant to behavior but also includes more detail about anatomy and chemistry. Biological psychology is not only a field of study. It is also a point of view. It holds that the proper way to understand behavior is in terms of how it evolved and how the functioning of the brain and other organs controls behavior. We think and act as we do because we have certain brain mechanisms, and we evolved those brain mechanisms because ancient animals with these mechanisms survived and reproduced better than animals with other mechanisms.
