The result is that X-chromosome genes resemble imprinted ones in respect of their one-sided pattern of expression, and according to the imprinted brain theory are of the first importance as a result—particularly in view of the size of the X and the fact that it is known to contain so many genes critical to cognition.

    Less well understood are the origins of imprinted gene expression in the brain, and their effects on cognition and behavior.
