In development, nature refers to genes. Thus, traits, capacities, and limitations inherited at conception are nature.
Nurture, on the other hand, includes all environmental influences that occur after conception, from the mother’s nutrition while pregnant to the culture of the nation.
Epigenetics is the study of how environmental factors affect genes and genetic expression – enhancing, halting, shaping, or altering the expression of genes.
