Abstract

The primary purpose of this study is to examine the genetic factors and social/environmental factors which contribute to delinquency across adolescence and early adulthood. Additionally, this study investigates the gene x gene and gene x environment interactive effects on aggression and antisocial behavior. Genetic variables examined in the study include COMT, DAT1, DRD2, DRD4, and MAOA. This study seeks to determine whether the influence of genetic factors associated with aggression and antisocial behavior remain stable or change over the life course
