Because behavioral genetics
investigates genetic differences, because it aspires to understand how differences at the level of the gene are related to differences in traits, it also raises questions about human equality.
Paper sessions cover such topics as emotional intelligence, the biological basis of personality and individual differences in affect regulation, and posters address issues ranging from behavioral genetics
to health and disease, methods, and neuroticism.
Crafting Tools for Public Conversation about Behavioral Genetics
is a three-year project in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, funded by the Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues program of the NIH's Human Genome Research Institute.
Naomi Friedman, senior research associate at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics
at the University of Colorado at Boulder, showed that children whose sleep problems persisted across development had poorer executive functioning at age 17, compared with those whose problems decreased to a greater extent.
The remaining 25 contributions from leading academics and researchers discuss such topics as evidence from behavioral genetics
for environmental contributions to antisocial conduct; socialization in the context of family diversity; and children's development of cultural repertoires through participation in everyday routines and practices.
Contributors to this collection examine research methodology in behavioral genetics
, the question of determinism, the implications for criminal justice and welfare systems, genetic privacy and disclosure, and how to keep one's "moral bearing" in the genetic information age.
Coverage includes terms, concepts, and people pertaining behavioral genetics

In this essay I attempt to make a small contribution to that project by calling attention to two errors that are sometimes made in discussions of the implications of genetics research in general, and behavioral genetics
research in particular.
New Jersey-based independent investigator Harris asks why no two people are alike, even identical twins, drawing on evolutionary, social, and developmental psychology; psycholinguistics; neuroscience; and behavioral genetics
It is also a view that is bolstered by research in behavioral genetics
, which highlights the joint contributions of hereditary predispositions and environmental triggers (such as stress or nutrition).
director of the VCU Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics

The first several articles cover the neuroendocrine basis of stress, behavioral genetics
, cognitive neuroscience, and color psychology.
