The Genetic Components of Verbal Divergent Thinking and Short Term Memory.
Pezzullo, Thomas R.; Madaus, George F.
A study of twins was conducted to determine the presence of an hereditary component in short term memory and in three aspects of verbal divergent thinking--flexibility, fluency, and originality. Results showed the existence of a significant genetic component in the trait of short term memory, while none was found in verbal divergent thinking. (AG)
