About the cover

November 2010 Volume 13 No 11

Life experiences affect behavior, in part by altering DNA via epigenetic modifications. We present a special focus on the growing field of neural epigenetics with articles highlighting the latest advances in our understanding of these epigenetic mechanisms, their regulation and their role in the nervous system. The cover image is a painting by J. David Sweatt which portrays an abstract representation of the dynamic regulation of epigenetic mechanisms and the resulting downstream effects.
