Brain Waves: Is Our Sensitivity to Emotions A Product of Nature or Nurture?

For our first Brain Waves episode of the year, we tap into our emotions to look at how much of our sensitivity to emotions and emotional intelligence is linked to environmental factors and how much of it is linked to our genes?
