News Highlight: Genetic Relationships

Nature or Nurture? A recent meta-analysis was conducted which has shed new light on the relationship between a person’s genetics and three mood disorders: Major Depression, Bipolar types 1 and 2. We know that genetics do not dictate one’s makeup alone; it is the interplay of our genetics with our environmental influences. And we also know that one or even a few studies don’t mean causation, only correlation. We take these findings and build new hypotheses, then test more and learn more.

I wonder what we’ll learn next.
