Lecture 6 Evolutionary Psychology And Nature/Nurture!
Nature (Genetics)
Study of the relative power and limits of genetic and environmental
influences on behavior.!
Nurture (Environment)
Every non-genetic influence, from prenatal nutrition to the people and
things around us.!
How do we investigate the heritability of traits? (ppt4)!
Identical双胞 Twins 100%. Fraternal󰙅凤 Twins50%.!
Measure : IQ. Measure : IQ.!
-Rate of similarity. - Rate of similarity.!
Single fertilized egg. Separate eggs!
Identical Twins
Develop from a single fertilized egg that splits in two, creating two
genetically identical organisms.!
Fraternal Twins
Develop from separate eggs.!
Genetically no closer than brothers and sisters, but they share the fetal
Environmental pressure (捕⾷者是“PE”)
Genetic traits depend the survival rate of a species.
Ex. Rabbit A have the cognitive mapping trait
the proportion of variation among individuals that we can attribute to genes!
may vary, depending on the range of populations and environments studied !
the dependence of the eect of one factor (such as environment) on
another factor (such as heredity)!

with regard to intelligence and specific personality traits, such as
