House will soon realize at least a portion of that dream: NIH is due

Genetic Explanations for Human Behavior Eyed
The use of genetic factors to explain human characteristics such as
intelligence is associated, in certain population subgroups, with
particular political and social ideologies, according to a study
directed by Dr. Toby Jayaratne of the Institute for Research on
Women and Gender at the University of Michigan and guest speaker
on June 20 at the Human Genome Lecture Series. Her lecture,
"White and Black Americans' Genetic Explanations for Perceived
Gender, Class and Race Differences: The Psychology of Genetic
Beliefs," concluded NHGRI's 2001-2002 series.
