Analysis by Dr Oliver Davis and collaborators show the correlation between reading and mathematics ability at age twelve has a substantial genetic component

10 July 2014

The analysis published in Nature Communications, show, using twin and genome-wide analysis, that there is a substantial genetic component to children’s ability in reading and mathematics, and estimate that around one half of the observed correlation in these traits is due to shared genetic effects (so-called Generalist Genes). Thus, the results highlight the potential role of the learning environment in contributing to differences in a child’s cognitive abilities at age twelve.
