Abstract:
Recent research progress has been especially rapid in behavior genetics, but standard human research methods (twin and adoptee studies) can both overestimate and underestimate genetic contributions. This talk will also discuss recent advances in our understanding of touch, taste, circadian rhythms, anxiety, memory, and antidepressant drugs.
