It is part of this issue that genes have crucial role on human development, learning and other characteristics including but not limited to intelligence and strength (Lefrancois, 2011; Engler, 2008; Harris, 2012). In behavioral genetics, there is a strong emphasis that heredity has strong impact on human behavior (Feldman, 2008). This means that one could attribute much about human behavior from genes aside from the prevailing claims that part of human development is due... out the...
