Studied whether genetic variability explained some of the variance in coincidence timing and whether common genetic factors accounted for the association with intellectual functioning using 55 pairs of 16-year-old twins. Results suggest that the genetic influence operating on coincidence timing skills was of similar magnitude to that of response time tasks. Discusses implications for the study of shared variance among different information processing measures. (SLD)
