PSY 330 Week 2 DQ 2 Heritability For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Heritability One of the goals of behavioral genetics is to identify the heritability of a particular behavior. Heritability is the amount of variance in observed behaviors among people that can be explained by genetics. Review this week’s reading and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of some of the methods used to determine heritability in humans. Address the use of adoption studies and twin studies, as well as shared environmental factors and unique environmental factors. Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words and utilize at least one peer-reviewed source that was published within the last five years, cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Respond substantively to two peers whose perspective was different from yours. Describe one strength and one weakness of your peer’s interpretation. How is it possible, when referring to scientific methods, for the interpretation of these methods to be so varied?
