Patrick, Carol L.
Journal of School Psychology, v38 n1 p79-108 Jan-Feb 2000
Literature from the field of developmental behavior suggests that the relative effect of genetic influences on cognitive ability may increase with age, whereas the relative effect of shared environment may decrease. Implications of these findings are discussed, including the importance of studying environmental issues outside the family. (Author/MKA)
