Program Description

This program shows how scientists are studying identical twins to illuminate the age-old debate over nature versus nurture. Twin studies offer valuable insights into the inheritability of character intelligence, and other traits. DNA may make us what we physically are, but it is a flexible blueprint that gives us the power to be truly free.
