You should all, at the very least, read "The Neuroscience of Intelligence", by Doctor Richard J. Haier, Professor Emeritus in the Pediatric Neurology Division of the School of Medicine at University of California, Irvine. It is part of the Cambridge Fundamentals of Neuroscience in Psychology series, it contains such wonderful quotes as:
>The most far-reaching implications for science, and perhaps for society, will come from
identifying genes responsible for the heritability of g … Despite the formidable challenges
of trying to find genes of small effect, I predict that most of the heritability of g will be
accounted for eventually by specific genes, even if hundreds of genes are needed to do it.
(Plomin, 1999, pp. 27, 28)
>Finding genes brings us closer to an understanding of the neurophysiological basis of
human cognition. Furthermore, when genes are no longer latent factors in our models but can actually be measured, it becomes feasible to identify those environmental factors that
interact and correlate with genetic makeup. This will supplant the long nature/nurture debate
with actual understanding.
(Posthuma and de Geus, 2006, p. 151)
>It might be argued that it is no longer surprising to demonstrate genetic influence on a
behavioral trait, and that it would be more interesting to find a trait that shows no genetic
(Plomin and Deary, 2015, p. 98)
And that's even before the introduction has begun. Of course, none of this would surprise you if you understood the nature of expression, and that is phenotype. The interaction between the genotype and the envirotype, nature and nurture are inseparable.
Do I need to continue, or have you been schooled enough yet, boy?
