+ - BBC is reporting possible "memory" passed between generations->

Submitted by Raging Bool
Raging Bool (782050) writes "As discussed in Star Trek (TOS), the concept of "race memory" is thought not to exist in practive. But the BBC is reporting (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-25156510) that acquired phobias or aversions during one's lifetime can be passed on to subsequent generations. They provide a link to an abstract in the journal Nature: (http://www.nature.com/neuro/journal/vaop/ncurrent/abs/nn.3594.html)."
