Neurobiological approaches in human behavior genetics.


An attempt should be made to base analysis of problems in human behavior genetics on existing knowledge of human biochemical genetics and neurobiology. Examples for this approach are studies showing HY antigen patterns of the opposite sex in transsexuality, slight psychological deviations in heterozygotes of recessive metabolic diseases such as phenylketonuria and lipid storage diseases, and psychological studies in healthy individuals with various genetic variants of the normal human electroencephalogram (EEG). Results of such studies will help gradually to replace emotional controversy by rational assessment of facts.
