Trying to separate out nature and nurture as explanations for behaviour, as in classic genetic studies of twins and families, is now said to be both impossible and unproductive. In practice the nature-nurture model persists as a way of framing discussion on the causes of behaviour in genetic research papers, as well as in the media and lay debate. This is often referred to as the nature vs. nurture debate, or nativism vs. empiricism. A nativist (“nature”) account of development would argue that the processes in question are innate and influenced by an organism’s genes. Natural human behavior is seen as the result of already-present biological factors, such as genetic code.
The one says genes determine an individual while the other claims the environment is the linchpin for development. Since the 16th century, when the terms “nature” and “nurture” first came into use, many people have spent ample time debating which is more important, but these discussions have more often led to ideological cul-de-sacs. The repercussions for evolutionary biology and the roles and categorizations of genes, behavior, and environment in behavior-environment relations are explored in light of current knowledge, including specific implications for the experimental analysis of behavior. Key words: Nature-nurture issues, developmental psychobiology, probabilistic.
Synthesizing nature-nurture: prenatal roots of instinctive behavior. [Gilbert Gottlieb] Gottlieb succeeds brilliantly in this book in describing in personal terms how discovery depends on keen observation and creative application of methods that continually refocus and refine Behavior, Animal. Developmental Biology. Ducks. Genetics. Keller explains the persistence of the nature/nurture debate by a chronic ambiguity in language derived from classical and behavioral genetics. She suggests that the more precise vocabulary of modern molecular genetics may be used to rephrase the underlying questions and hence provide a way out of this controversy. I show that her proposal fits into a long tradition in which other authors .

However, in Sarah Blaffer Hrdy's thoughtful critique (Hrdy, ), she challenges the assumption that there is any such thing as an “essential” mothering nature.

Advances in cognitive neuroscience are rapidly transforming how scientists think about psychopathology. This highly readable book illuminates the interplay among biological processes and psychological and social-contextual factors in the development of such widely encountered problems as depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, dyslexia, and autism.

It describes novel solutions to the nature-nurture problem at both the empirical and theoretical levels. Child behavior was deemed abnormal and, in accordance with Freudian psychoanalysis in vogue at the time, was due to the child’s mother. The nature versus nurture debate had its day and has since remained relatively dormant.
