Reading Performance and Verbal Short-Term Memory: A Twin Study of Reciprocal Causation.
Wadsworth, Sally J.; And Others
Intelligence, v20 n2 p145-67 Mar-Apr 1995
The genetic and environmental causes of the phenotypic association between reading and verbal short-term memory (VSTM) were analyzed using data from the Colorado Reading Project for 446 twin pairs. Results of bivariate behavioral genetic analyses indicate that both reading ability and VSTM are highly heritable. (SLD)
