Is nutrient chemical uptake, as occurs with the ingestion of these fatty acids, responsible for de novo gene expression in the non-human primate to human brain that is controlled by nutrient chemical metabolism to pheromones?  If so, adaptive evolution of our brain and behavior appears to be nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled as is behavior in species from microbes to man via ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction.
