Low statistical power, population stratification). The primary cause of non-replications may lie in the nature of polygenic inheritance (Comings 1998). Complex human behaviors, such as parent-attachment, are likely accounted for by multiple genes (and functional variants) each individually having a small effect. There may be an inverse relation between the odds of finding significant independent genetic contributions to a human trait, and the sophistication of the trait of interest (Turkheimer and Waldron 2000).

Once identified, measured genes can be incorporated into regular studies and analyzed together with other measured variables, such as attachment. Evidence so far has linked infant disorganization with the DRD4, 5-HTT and OXTR gene polymorphisms. The DRD4 gene polymorphism has been linked to novelty seeking, pathological impulsive and compulsive behavior in adults (Benjamin et al. 1996; Comings et al. 1999), as well as ADHD in children (Faraone et al. 2005); most of these phenotypes potentially having in common impairments of regulation of emotional arousal and a possible dysregulation of the reward system.

Including, but not limited to, parenting in infancy and early childhood; Klahr and Burt 2013) also supports this idea. , control, warmth) included significant, but very small (23–26 %) genetic contributions. , Feldman et al. 2012), suggesting some maternal genetic underpinning of sensitive parenting, over and above child genetic risk. Thus, it appears that parents’ own genetic characteristics predict their parenting perceptions and child-rearing practices. This idea is also supported by the above-mentioned meta-analysis (Klahr and Burt 2013), which concluded to significant contributions of parental genetic makeup to parental negativity and warmth.
