PSYC 39903 - Behavioral Genetics

Course Credit: 1
BEHAVIORAL GENETICS How much can genes tell us about complex human behavior? How do genes and the environment interact in the development of phenotypic traits? What research techniques can be used to identify specific genes and particular environments that affect behavior? To address these questions we will critically explore traditional behavioral genetic methodologies (twin and adoption studies) as well as modern approaches based on molecular genetic techniques. Prerequisite(s): PSYC-25000 (minimum grade C-); Junior or Senior class standing; and advanced background in Psychology.
