English term or phrase: misunderstanding and misconception
Could you tell me how to translate both terms please?
This is their context: " There are susceptibility genes for all forms of human behaviour and not just for those that involve diseases. It would be seriously mistaken to equate the discovery of a susceptibility gene with any implication that the gene is pathological or that the behaviour should now be seen in medical terms. It is a very common misunderstanding, but it represents a serious misconception of what is involved in the operation of genetic influences."
