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

Raging Bool 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).
