Our Genes And Us - Making It In A Tough Environmen

Season 1, Episode 3 of 4

The Dunedin Study has identified a fundamental developmental mechanism that completely rewrites the "nature versus nurture" argument. It is a genetic switch which is thrown by life events - nature loads the gun, but nurture pulls the trigger. This episode tracks the hunt for the mechanism using three specific examples - violence in men, depression and cannabis-induced schizophrenia.
