All animals including human beings have in-built forces which enable them behave in a certain manner. Genes play an important role in determining an individualâ€™s behavior. Though not directly involved, genes govern the development and functioning of the nervous system which in turn causes and controls the way than an individual behaves. Genes contribute only a little towards an animalâ€™s behavior as environmental factors are the most determinant factors.
Different environments provide the opportunity for individuals to behave in a certain manner to the point of adapting that particular behavior. These adaptive characteristics may even e passed on to other generations. The behavior of the off spring will therefore be determined by the traits inherited from the parents. Some of the most common behaviors that are inherited include specific cognitive abilities which determine an individualâ€™s ability to perform academically. Genetic research on animal and human behavior shows that genetic influence involves not only some few major genes but multiple of genes.
