- Heritability of preferences for multiple cues of mate quality in humansBrendan P Zietsch
School of Psychology, University of Queensland, St Lucia 4067, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Evolution 66:1762-72. 2012..Heritability was a little higher in reproductive aged than in nonreproductive aged women, but the difference was not significant...
- Do shared etiological factors contribute to the relationship between sexual orientation and depression?B P Zietsch
School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Psychol Med 42:521-32. 2012..Here we test the viability of common cause (shared genetic or environmental etiology) explanations of elevated depression rates in non-heterosexuals...
- Common and specific genetic influences on EEG power bands delta, theta, alpha, and betaBrendan P Zietsch
Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane 4029, Australia
Biol Psychol 75:154-64. 2007..Non-additive genetic effects on beta power and a common environment effect on delta, theta, and alpha powers were observed in the frontal region...

Behav Genet 40:12-21. 2010..09), and that in each case the correlation was due primarily to overlapping genetic influences. These findings suggest that the genetic influences that shape our personality may also predispose us to risky sexual behaviour...
- Variation in human mate choice: simultaneously investigating heritability, parental influence, sexual imprinting, and assortative matingBrendan P Zietsch
School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
Am Nat 177:605-16. 2011..The main discernible pattern of mate choice was assortative mating; we found that partner similarity was due to initial choice rather than convergence and also at least in part to phenotypic matching...

Genetic Epidemiology, Queensland Institute of Medical Research, 300 Herston Road, Brisbane, QLD 4029, Australia
Genes Brain Behav 8:107-13. 2009..Moreover, RSB is associated with adolescent misconduct (r = 0.5), primarily because of genetic correlation between the variables. The implications of our findings as well as possible sex differences are discussed...
