2011 marks the 35th
year of the Colorado Adoption Project (CAP), classifying it
as one of the longest running studies of its kind. The purpose
of the CAP is to study both nature and nurture, to determine
the genetic predispositions as well as the environmental influences
that contribute to traits such as intelligence, personality,
and behavior. In order to do this a wide range of interviews
are conducted with participating families. These include in-person
and telephone interviews that measure cognition, social attitudes,
and behavioral choices. The CAP is an ongoing research project
of the Institute for
Behavioral Genetics, which is located on the east campus
of the University of Colorado.
