Adkins-Regan et al., 2013 Reading Discussion Leader Question 1:
In the conclusions the authors of the paper state that (when referring to parental effects on offspring) “Some are hormonally mediated or have hormonal consequences. Some are behaviorally mediated or have behavioral consequences. Some are influenced by social factors or learning.” Do you think that some parental effects could be mediated by an interaction between hormones and behavior? If so, why? If not, why not? Please explain using just 2-3 sentences.
