What is Behavioural Genetics?

Behavioural Genetics combines Genetics and Psychology. Human behaviour and the interaction between inheritance and environmental influences on behavioural patterns are studied.

The genetic limits and the probability of the pattern of behavioural inheritance determine the effect of the environment on raising individuals without certain 'negative traits' being present.
