Project Details


This project addressed some of the most fundamental methodological issues facing family researchers today. In recent years, behavioural genetics has increased understanding of not only genetics effects on child development but also environmental effects and the interaction between the two. A major aim of the proposed research was to develop optimum methods for assessing both shared (ie, common to all children in a family) and non-shared (ie, specific to individual children in the family) influences and the relationship between them.

The project also examined the influences of the wider social environment in which families operate.
