This modular, evolutionary mental view of the brain undermines deeply held intuitions approximately ourselves, in addition to a number medical theories that require a "self" with constant ideals and personal tastes. Modularity means that there's no "I. " in its place, each one people is a contentious "we"--a number of discrete yet interacting structures whose consistent conflicts form our interactions with each other and our event of the world.
In transparent language, packed with wit and wealthy in examples, Kurzban explains the roots and implications of our inconsistent minds, and why it really is completely traditional to think that everybody else is a hypocrite.

In general, UGTs are considered less prone to drug-drug inhibition interactions than the P450 enzymes, in part because they tend to have lower affinity for drug substrates (and inhibitors) and have substantial overlap in substrate specificities (Williams et al. 2004). Researchers at the National Institutes of Health recently discovered a novel indirect molecular mechanism for drug-drug interaction that appears (so far) to be unique to the UGTs. Specifically, they discovered that to be fully active, the UGT enzymes must be phosphorylated at certain amino acid sites on the enzyme (Basu et al.
1, 2). Because they are all in a single family, members of the ABC family all have the same ABC designation, and the first integer is skipped. , ABCB1). Because members of the SLC superfamily are not in a single family, their designation, SLC, is followed by an integer (family), letter (subfamily), and integer (isoform). There is a single exception in the SLC nomenclature. , SLCO1A2). In addition to their official names, previous symbols and previous names or “aliases” can also be found at the Web address above.
Such a phenomenon is hypothesized to occur with the induction of valproic acid: the production of toxic metabolites is increased, leading to hepatotoxicity (see Chapter 15, “Neurology”). 3A4, 2D6, 1A2, 2C9, 2C19, and 2E1 may all be induced.
