Which Aspects of Processing Text Mediate Genetic Effects?
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v3 n3-4 p249-69 Dec 1991
Investigates genetic influences on reading in a sample of 285, 13-year-old twins. Finds the heritability of disability for reading recognition to be nonsignificant but that spelling had a substantial genetic contribution to all levels of disability. Suggests two possible independent aspects of phonological ability, each influenced by genetic factors. (RS)
