Reality is in the eye (genes) of the beholder? :-)

I'd be very surprised if an individual gene variation is responsible for negative perception variation in the population.

Even if there was, it would be near in possible for researchers to devise a study that could isolate all other possible causes of negative perception, to prove such a definitive causal link.

I too doubt that there will be a single gene--there almost never is. More likely some kind of cluster or combination. Also, it would describe a predisposition for seeing the world one way and then life circumstances have to play a role. Kind of a multifactorial gene-environment interaction.

Here's evidence we can change that view - I watched the first of this three part series on brain plasticity Redesign my Brain, last week. The evidence - even in greatly eliminating attentional blink was pretty impressive.

The first episode is available on iview
and there are heaps of supporting stuff, brain tests (inc attentional blink) and smaller video excerpts on the program site.
