1 |Hair color inheritance
New information about the inheritance of red hair shows that there’s a lot more to it than just having two copies of the red-hair version of the gene MC1R. A lot more. Maybe its not just polygenic, but perhaps omnigenic.
- Hair colour gene study sheds new light on roots of redheads’ locks (summary of the update) my-ap.us/2zYXkeL
- Genome-wide study of hair colour in UK Biobank explains most of the SNP heritability (the research article in Nature Communications) my-ap.us/2zWWIpU

3 | Building body maps
It turns out that all that kicking inside the uterus during the last trimester of pregnancy has a role in the mapping of our body in the somatosensory cortex.
- Babies kicking in the womb are creating a map of their bodies (summary of the update; includes videos) my-ap.us/2A0t8jv
- Newborn babies’ brain responses to being touched on the face measured for the first time (some related news) my-ap.us/2zWX3ZI
- Developmental trajectory of movement-related cortical oscillations during active sleep in a cross-sectional cohort of pre-term and full-term human infants (the research article in Scientific Reports) my-ap.us/2A0lcib
