Hello!

I currently have to write a short essay about nature vs nurture but I am struggling to find some studies/experiments that show evidence for Nature or Nurture.

Is anybody able to let me know of some studies? I need to outline evidence for both sides. I'm doing an access course to become a Midwife so this is my first time learning about Psychology.

Thanks

Since at least the mid '70s, the nature/nurture debate has been recognised as a false dichotomy in practically every field. These articles gives a readable summary of the case in psychology.

If you want more detail on the general issue, here's an open-access paper that includes lots of references, but it is quite long....https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3119494/
