- A Genetic Investigation of the Covariation Among Inspection Time, Choice Reaction Time, and IQ Subtest Scores. Michelle Luciano, Wendy H.; Wright, Margaret J.; Geffen, Gina M.; Geffen, Laurie B.; Smith, Glen A.; Martin, Nicholas G. // Behavior Genetics;Jan2004, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p41
Information processing speed, as measured by elementary cognitive tasks, is correlated with higher order cognitive ability so that increased speed relates to improved cognitive performance. The question of whether the genetic variation in Inspection Time (IT) and Choice Reaction Time (CRT) is...
