How important are genetic influences on behavior? How many genes influence an individual behavior, and how much influence does a single gene have? How do genes interact with the environment to influence the development of behavioral traits? What are the differences between humans and 'simpler' organisms when it comes to the genetic control of behavior? How Genes Influence Behavior is a unique introduction to behavioral genetics, which combines conceptual rigor with accessibility to answer questions such as these - answers that carry important implications for the nature of who we are. Offering unparalleled insights into how behavioural genetics is probed through real-world research, it considers evidence from humans and the major model organisms of mouse, fruit-fly and nematode worm to demonstrate how much of our current understanding of the genetic basis of human behavior stems from our exploration of other animals. Further, it uses these studies to connect the key themes of the book - the nature of gene action, and the inter-relationship of genetic and environmental influences on behaviour - across organisms, highlighting key commonalities and differences.
