Biological psychology throughout history and the nature v

  1. 1. Psychology: The Nature v. Nurture Question One major aspect of psychology is the Nature v. Nurture debate. The essential question is “Which aspect is more influential on human behavior, genetic make-up or the environment in which we are raised? Be sure to include your own opinion about which influence is stronger in your forum post. Celebrations today for Ramon, Celeste and Jackson for picking a side and defending it with great facts in the forum!
  2. 2. Psychology: The Biological Perspective Sometimes it is difficult to determine our ability to stay calm in a crisis is due to your genetic makeup or from how we watched a parent, teacher, or peer handle situations. Of course, both factors play a significant role but science is interested in more specifically defining the origin of human decisions and behaviors. Have you responded in our class forum with your personal account of how you recently handled a crisis?
  3. 3. Biological Perspective: Is Nature v. Nurture still a valid question? We might also ask ourselves and examine research that proposes that the Nature v. Nurture can not be defined as a debate because so many experts agree that genetics and environment play equally significant roles. List 3 of your favorite “go to” research sites today and share them your classmates in the “Resource Relay” forum. For example: http://www.psychologytoday.com/basics
