Abstract:

Annotation

Offers a past and present view of behavioral genetics research in psychology--which in recent years has yielded critical discoveries about the origins of human differences--and identifies directions for the future of the field. Active investigators summarize current findings in the research domains of cognitive abilities and disabilities, the development of personality and temperament, and psychopathology. Leading environmentalists and behavioral geneticists explore the relationship between nature and nurture and propose new theories that encompass both concepts.
