About James V. Kohl

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to help accurately conceptualize energy-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. He began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. James continues to disseminate accurate information to diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualizations and his well-developed model of energy-dependent biophysically constrained biologically-based cause and effect. Kohl integrated observational and experimental evidence that pinpoints how the energy-dependent Creation of an ecologically adapted neurophysiological mechanism links olfactory/pheromonal input to gene activation in hormone-secreting cells of tissue in a specific area of the brain, the hypothalamus. Ecological variation is linked to ecological adaptations via the sensory integration of olfactory and visual input, which determines how behavioral development leads to the development of personal preferences for food and for other people via secretion of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) and effects of hormones that affect cognition and behavior. The levels of complexity may overwhelm those who were taught to believe in mutation-driven evolution if they are not mentally prepared to abandon the theories and replace them with facts.

Articles & Awards

Kohl’ award-winning 2007 article/book chapter on multisensory integration: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences followed an award winning 2001 publication: Human pheromones: integrating neuroendocrinology and ethology, which was coauthored by distinguished researchers from Vienna. Rarely do researchers win awards in multiple disciplines, but Kohl’s 2001 award was for the neuroscience of behavior, and his 2007 “Reiss Theory” award was for a social science approach to behavior.

Additional Publications

Each of Kohl’s published works link what is known about food odors, human pheromones, and nutritional epigenetics from conserved molecular mechanisms of ecological variation to RNA-mediated cell type differentiation and ecological adaptions in species from microbes to man.


Kohl worked as a medical laboratory scientist from 1974 until 2013, and maintains his emeritus status in the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) as a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS). He devoted more than twenty-nine of those thirty-nine years to researching the relationship between the sense of smell and cell type differentiation, which he linked to life history transitions that include the development of human sexual preferences and facts linked to suicide prevention. Unlike many researchers who work with non-human subjects, medical laboratory scientists use the latest technology from many scientific disciplines to perform a variety of specialized diagnostic medical testing on people. That fact led Kohl to recognize how nutrient-dependent pheromone-regulated genetic processes of cell type differentiation link epigenetically effected cell type differentiation — in all cells of all tissues in all organs of all organ systems in all organisms — from ecological variation to conserved molecular mechanisms of ecological adaptations.
