Through genetic influences, gene-environment interactions, and learning, stable individual differences emerge in the preferences, identities, and social values people hold. These values will influence how a prosocial decision will be internally framed thereby determining the willingness to cooperate and the type of rationality that will most. Get this from a library!

The sample for this landmark study included pairs of same-sex adolescent siblings―including twins, half siblings, and genetically unrelated siblings―and their by: The book is unique in integrating research on both psychosocial and behavioral genetic influences in adolescent development. In contrast to most traditional studies, it includes step-families of at least 5 years and focused more on nonshared environments in the family, i.e., what is unique to different siblings that may account for individual 5/5(2).

The genetics of social behavior is an area of research that attempts to address the question of the role that genes play in modulating the neural circuits in the brain which influence social behavior. Model genetic species, such as gaster (common fruit fly) and Apis mellifera (honey bee), have been rigorously studied and proven to be instrumental in developing the science of genetics. The genomics revolution has added powerful new potentialities and renewed impetus for understanding how biological, social, and behavioral processes act together in health and illness. More specifically, the genomics revolution is driving a paradigm shift from reductionistic approaches that focus on elements in isolation to systems approaches that focus on the interconnectedness of networks of Cited by: 2.
