Epigenetic modulation is found to get involved in multiple neurobehavioral processes. It is believed that different types of environmental stimuli could alter the epigenome of the whole brain or related neural circuits, subsequently contributing to the long-lasting neural plasticity of certain behavioral phenotypes. While the maternal influence on the health of offsprings has been long recognized, recent findings highlight an alternative way for neurobehavioral phenotypes to be passed on to the… Expand
Transgenerational paternal transmission of acquired traits: stress-induced modification of the sperm regulatory transcriptome and offspring phenotypes
TLDR
Understanding the mechanisms involved in such transgenerational effects may facilitate future screening of human sperm for 'epigenetic health' and the tailoring of therapeutic interventions according to genetic and epigenetic contributions to illness. Expand
Thyroid Hormone Influences Brain Gene Expression Programs and Behaviors in Later Generations by Altering Germ Line Epigenetic Information
TLDR
Developmental levels of thyroid hormone influence the epigenetic information of the germ line, disproportionately affecting genes with critical roles in early brain development, and leading in future generations to disease-relevant alterations in postnatal brain gene expression and adult behavior.

Multigenerational and transgenerational effects of paternal exposure to drugs of abuse on behavioral and neural function
Addictions are highly heritable disorders, with heritability estimates ranging from 39% to 72%. Multiple studies suggest a link between paternal drug abuse and addiction in their children. However,Expand
Prenatal programming of stress responsiveness and behaviours: Progress and perspectives
TLDR
This review will focus on the latest research, bridging human and pre‐clinical studies, and will highlight some of the limitations, challenges and gaps that exist in the field. Expand
Understanding the epigenetic basis of sex differences in depression
TLDR
What is known about sex differences in epigenetic regulation and function and how this may contribute to the etiology and onset of mood disorders are discussed. Expand

  • Mechanisms of Ageing and Development
  • 2017
TLDR
Circulating RNAs, especially those associated with extracellular vesicles like exosomes, are emerging as promising candidates that can transmit gene regulatory information in this direction, and these new observations provide a basis to integrate epigenetic inheritance. Expand
Transgenerational transmission of maternal stimulatory experience in domesticated birds

TLDR
These findings provide a framework for determining the mechanisms by which maternal stimulatory factors can be inherited transgenerationally with respect to growth, fertility, DNA methylation, and transcriptional levels in outbred animals. Expand
Obesity, male infertility, and the sperm epigenome.
Obesity is a growing epidemic and a common problem among reproductive-age men that can both cause and exacerbate male-factor infertility by means of endocrine abnormalities, associated comorbidities,Expand
Male obesity impacts DNA methylation reprogramming in sperm
TLDR
Male obesity is associated with altered sperm DNA methylation profiles that appear to affect reprogramming fidelity in a subset of sperm, suggestive of an influence on the spermatogonia. Expand
Multi-, Inter-, and Transgenerational Effects of Drugs of Abuse on Behavior.
TLDR
This chapter in current topics in behavioral neurogenomics examines the evidence for the presence of behavioral phenotypes and, in particular, the varied and often opposite behavioral responses observed with protocol shifts. Expand

Epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of altered stress responses
TLDR
It is found that a single exposure to a common-use fungicide three generations removed alters the physiology, behavior, metabolic activity, and transcriptome in discrete brain nuclei in descendant males, causing them to respond differently to chronic restraint stress. Expand

TLDR
Animal models of parental stress have examined relevant offspring phenotypes and transgenerational outcomes, and provided unique insight into the germ cell epigenetic changes associated with disruptions in neurodevelopment. Expand
Transgenerational Epigenetic Programming of the Brain Transcriptome and Anxiety Behavior
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an embryonic exposure to an environmental compound appears to promote a reprogramming of brain development that correlates with transgenerational sex-specific alterations in the brain transcriptomes and behavior. Expand
Epigenetic Transmission of the Impact of Early Stress Across Generations
TLDR
It is shown that chronic and unpredictable maternal separation induces depressive-like behaviors and alters the behavioral response to aversive environments in the separated animals when adult, highlighting the negative impact of early stress on behavioral responses across generations and on the regulation of DNA methylation in the germline.

Paternally induced transgenerational inheritance of susceptibility to diabetes in mammals
TLDR
This study uniquely revealed that prediabetes can be inherited transgenerationally through the mammalian germ line by an epigenetic mechanism, and increases the susceptibility to diabetes in offspring through gametic epigenetic alterations. Expand
Transgenerational neuroendocrine disruption of reproduction
TLDR
Current understanding of the epigenetic mechanisms that underlie sexual differentiation of reproductive neuroendocrine systems in mammals is discussed and the literature on transgenerational epigenetic effects of representative EDCs: vinclozolin, diethylstilbesterol, bisphenol A and polychlorinated biphenyls is summarized.

Epigenetic mechanisms of depression and antidepressant action.
TLDR
Recent advances in understanding of the epigenetic regulation of stress-related disorders are discussed and the hypothesis that aberrations in chromatin remodeling and subsequent effects on gene expression within limbic brain regions contribute to the pathogenesis of depression is supported. Expand
Epigenetic mechanisms of drug addiction
TLDR
There is robust evidence that repeated exposure to drugs of abuse induces changes within the brain's reward regions in three major modes of epigenetic regulation-histone modifications such as acetylation and methylation, DNA methylation and non-coding RNAs. Expand
Environmental stress and epigenetic transgenerational inheritance
TLDR
Several studies now support the role of environmental stress in promoting the epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of disease and suggest ancestral environmental stress may be a component of disease etiology in the current population. Expand
In utero undernourishment perturbs the adult sperm methylome and intergenerational metabolism
TLDR
Prenatal undernutrition can compromise male germline epigenetic reprogramming and thus permanently alter DNA methylation in the sperm of adult offspring at regions resistant to zygotic reprograming, as well as contribute to the intergenerational transmission of environmentally induced disease.
