John Hewitt and Richard BorderCU Psychology and Neuroscience Professor and Director of IBG John Hewitt (Behavioral Genetics) and graduate student Richard Border (Behavioral Genetics, mentored by Soo Rhee) were in the news with an article about their recently published research appearing in the Denver Post.
