Frontiers for Young Minds
Twin studies are studies conducted on identical or fraternal twins. They aim to reveal the importance of environmental and genetic influences for traits, phenotypes , and disorders. Twin research is considered a key tool in behavioral genetics and in content fields, from biology to psychology. Twin studies are part of the broader methodology used in behavior genetics , which uses all data that are genetically informative — siblings studies, adoption studies, pedigree, etc. These studies have been used to track traits ranging from personal behavior to the presentation of severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Twins also share many aspects of their environment e. The presence of a given genetic or phenotypic trait in only one member of a pair of twins called discordance provides a powerful window into environmental effects on such a trait.
A Thing or Two About Twins
Have you ever wondered why you look different from other people? Differences, such as height and hair color can come from differences in your genes called mutations. Understanding how mutations shape us can be a bit tricky, because we are also affected by the world around us. Twins and siblings can help us understand whether people are different because of genetic differences or because they live in different environments. Identical twins share the same genes, while non-identical twins share, on average, half of their genes with the other twin.
Every summer, on the first weekend in August, thousands of twins converge on Twinsburg, Ohio, a small town southeast of Cleveland named by identical twin brothers nearly two centuries ago. They come, two by two, for the Twins Days Festival, a three-day marathon of picnics, talent shows, and look-alike contests that has grown into one of the world's largest gatherings of twins. Dave and Don Wolf of Fenton, Michigan, have been coming to the festival for years. Like most twins who attend, they enjoy spending time with each other. In fact, during the past 18 years, the year-old truckers, whose identical beards reach down to their chests, have driven more than three million miles together, hauling everything from diapers to canned soup from places like Seattle, Washington, to Camden, New Jersey.
There are many myths about how to improve the odds of having twins. Although there are no proven ways to increase the likelihood of conceiving twins, there are certain factors that can make this type of pregnancy more likely. Twins can occur either when two separate eggs become fertilized in the womb or when a single fertilized egg splits into two embryos. Having twins is more common now than it was in the past. A woman has a higher chance of having twins if she conceives with the assistance of fertility treatment or is aged 35 years or over.

Она стояла у второй входной двери, что была в некотором отдалении, прижимая сумку к груди. Она казалось напуганной еще сильнее, чем раньше. - Мистер, - сказала она дрожащим голосом, - я не говорила вам, как меня зовут. Откуда вы узнали.
