Neural impact from socialisation

I was wondering if anyone could evaluate my hypothesis that:

Our psychology is the outcome of interaction between the basic drives
from the paleomammalian (limbic mid-brain) and reptillian (lower brain
core) system, which are hardwired from birth, and the degree to which
our cerebral cortex learns its stucture (becomes mylinated) from the
stimulus of social processes.

btw, do you know of any books that argue along these lines?
