A large response range can be observed in both behavioral and neuroendocrine responses to environmental challenges. This variation can arise from central mechanisms such as those involved in the shaping of general response tendencies (temperaments) or involves only one or the other output system (behavioral vs. endocrine response). The participation of genetic factors in this variability is demonstrated by family and twin studies in humans, the comparison of inbred strains and selection… CONTINUE READING
