Three generations of the Boone family have been major league baseball players (and All-Stars): Ray, his son, Bob, and grandsons Bret and Aaron. A baseball fan claims this is evidence for the role of genetics in athletic ability. How would you formulate an answer to this, and if asked, how would you approach studying this behavior?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether genetics plays a role in individual athletic ability and the approach used to study this behavior.

Introduction: Reaction of an individual towards external or internal stimuli, which alters one’s response to the environment, is known as one’s behavior. Behaviors are either innate or learned, according to the psychologists. The behavior with which an individual is born is known as the innate behavior and the behavior which an individual acquires through experience is known as learned behavior. Twin and adoption studies are used to understand the factors influencing individual behavior.

Explanation of Solution

The athletic ability of an individual is not only decided by the genetic factors but also with the help of environmental factors such as healthy diet and regular exercise as it has been shown that epigenome can be changed with the help of a healthy diet and regular exercise. It has been shown that the genes which are controlled by the environmental factors known as epigenes can be inherited.
