Sample text

91, p. 296) Introduction E nvironmental influences begin during the foetal stage as the mother’s hormonal balance, nutrition, and possible intake of stimulants or medication affect foetal development. The child’s innate or genetic characteristics begin to unfold in interaction with the environment from the moment of conception. In this chapter, I outline the most recent findings in genetic research and discuss the current view of genes as a more or less open system whose function is determined by multiple factors.

The genetic code is embedded in the sequence of the building blocks of the DNA. Chromosomes contain genes, which always occur in pairs. Human sperm and egg cells both contain twenty-three chromosomes. When these merge at conception they form one cell with twenty-three pairs: forty-six chromosomes in total. Thus, all the cells in the human body contain forty-six chromosomes arranged in pairs, except for the sex chromosomes, where women have two X-chromosomes while men have an X- and a Y-chromosome.

The way that children process experiences and perceptions of the environment has a great impact on their behaviour, including the expression of genetic dispositions. , will affect the neural structure. The child’s experiences and evaluations are closely associated with attachment relations, and the quality of early relationships is a key influence on the child’s processing capacity. Children’s understanding of their surroundings is more amenable to modification than the environment itself or the genes with which the environment interacts (Fonagy, 2003).
