Shannon, Thomas A.
In this project, we explored aspects of the nature-nurture debate: to what degree does our environment influence us and to what degree are we influenced by our genes? Diseases explored include Autism, Downs' Syndrome, Schizophrenia, BPD, OCD, ADHD, Alcoholism, and PTSD. Overall, the evidence led us to conclude that the degree to which either factor becomes an influence is both patient and disease dependent.
