Course Description:

Genetic, Environmental, and Personality Determinants of Health Risk Behaviors provides a brief overview of the epidemiology of tobacco use, unhealthy diet, obesity, and physical inactivity in relation to health outcomes. The genetic and environmental determinants of these risk behaviors and their underlying motivational systems are discussed. The measurement of intermediate phenotypes, such as personality and temperament, is presented as a means of advancing the knowledge of the role of gene-environment interactions in risk behaviors and health. The course concludes with a discussion of the effects of emotional or motivational states as they affect health risk behaviors.

 

This course is based upon material published by the National Academies Press for the National Academy of Sciences and is available as an open access article.
