Abstract: Behavior genetic findings figure in debates ranging from urgent public policy matters to perennial questions about the nature of human agency. Despite a common set of methodological tools, behavior genetic studies approach scientific questions with potentially divergent goals. Some studies may be interested in identifying a complete model of how individual differences come to be (e.g., identifying causal pathways among genotypes, environments, and phenotypes across development). Other studies place primary imp… Show more

“…In these cases, we would have 90% power to detect effect sizes equivalent to r 2 = 0.005% (at p < 0.005 in the top ranked group) to 0.03% (at p < 4.5 x 10 15 in the bottom ranked group). These are reasonable anticipated effect sizes if the magnitude of GxE effects is similar to SNP effects observed in GWASs of complex human traits (Briley et al, 2019).…”

“…The dispersion between the two scales is very small (Table 1), and there are not statistically significant differences between them. This, plus an amount of interactive responses (10 for genes and 10 for environment), shows acceptance about the interaction of the two factors, and an interactive perception (Briley et al, 2018;Jacquard & Kahn, 2001), contrary to the additive perception, similar to studies with twins which need to quantify heritability and environment (Erbeli et al, 2018).…”
Section: Teachers' Perception About Learning Difficultiesmentioning
“…Findings were similar to the study of Brazilian teachers' perceptions about the influence of genes and environment on human behaviors in the educational environment (Antonelli-Ponti et al, 2018). Perceptions were divided into patterns related to social traits (personality and behavioral problems) and cognitive traits (intelligence and learning difficulties), furthermore, it was found that some teachers attribute equal weights to both factors, demonstrating an interactive perception (100% innate and 100% acquired) and not an additive perception (for example, 50% innate and 50% acquired) in relation to influences (Briley et al, 2018;Jacquard & Kahn, 2001).…”

“…In psychopathology research, developmental behavior genetic studies have the principal goal of specifying mechanisms through which some persons fare better in life than others. The great majority of longitudinal twin studies show that heritable factors account for stability of phenotypes, such as traits, behaviors, and emotions, whereas environmental factors account for change (Bartels et al, 2004;Bartels, Rietveld, Van Baal, & Boomsma, 2002;Briley et al, 2019;Bronfenbrenner & Ceci, 1994;Eaves, Long, & Heath, 1986). These studies are largely descriptive, as they often do not specify the processes that explain accrual of differences in phenotypic outcomes over time (for exceptions, see Dolan et al, 2014;Neale & McArdle, 2000;van den Berg & Boomsma, 2006) The limitation of these models are a consequence of the assumption that genetic and environmental factors are uncorrelated in the often-used additive model (Polderman et al, 2015).…”

“…Ageing is an unavoidable developmental event bringing several changes in the physical, psychological, hormonal and the social conditions (Briley et al, 2019;Catré, Lopes, Cabrita, & Viana, 2014). These changes are expected to affect the quality of life (QOL) of the elderly.…”
