Molecular effects in general.
The concentration of molecule in the blood or in the air controls
a distinct behavioral state.
The Molecule as an External Stimuli
Allelic variation - one gene - one protein - behavior? Behavioral strain
(breeding line) Beha
What is Behavior?
Systems living or not show behavior:
The weather behaves (or misbehaves)
molecules are moving and interacting with each other
In what way does the behavior of an animal differ?
Can we still derive animal behavior from laws of physics?
Alarm pheromone: When an ant is disturbed, it releases a
pheromone that can be detected by other ants several centimeters
Low level attracts ants them
High concentration evaporates slowly

Operant conditioning - a circumstance in which a threeway contingency is established between an antecedent
condition, a behavior, and a consequence, the key
element of which is the bond created between all three
GENES AND DEVELOPMENT
The Mendelian theory of one-gene -> one character (color of
flower, shape of seeds) is the exception rather than the rule. In reality,
we see many-to-many relations between characters and genes.
The neo-Darwinists developed an evol
