Behavior genetic researchers have been explicit in the message related to how genes exert influence; clearly, nature and nurture are not independent of one another, and the next era of research must focus on the interplay between them (87). The question is no longer whether genes and environment affect indices of aggressive behavior, but how these influences act together to form the behavioral outcomes of interest. Unfortunately, there is a paucity of research that has explicitly assessed the effects of GE Interaction or GE Correlation on the development of aggression, impulsivity, and related behaviors.

Thus, it was speculated that aggressive antisocial behavior (life course–dependent), which is more related to heritable aspects of temperament, would show a strong influence of genetic factors, whereas the nonaggressive antisocial behavior (adolescence-dependent) would be more influenced by environmental factors. Results from a study by Eley et al. (15) supported this hypothesis: genetic factors were more important for aggressive antisocial behavior than for nonaggressive antisocial behavior. Because the findings were consistent with those of Moffitt (37) and Caspi and colleagues (38), it was suggested that temperament might mediate the genetic effects on aggressive antisocial behavior.
