I thought you did a very good job in summarizing what nature vs nurture is, and how both are significant factors in development. The examples you provided for each stance were helpful, and showed how both genetic and environmental influences can impact an individual in various ways. The research you found about ASD was particularly interesting in that the study found both genetic and environmental influences as possible contributors for the disorder. Gene- environment interaction is when nature and nurture combine and some individuals are more sensitive to certain environments than others (Sigelman & Rider 2021). This seems to relate to the study that not only are there genetic factors at play, but also combined with environmental influences an individual is more likely to develop ASD. The percentage of genetic factors was insightful to learn. Did the article identify any other environmental factors other than infection during pregnancy as possible influences for the disorder?
