OBJECTIVE To consider recent findings from quantitative genetic research in the context of molecular genetic research, especially genome-wide association studies. We focus on findings that go beyond merely estimating heritability. We use learning abilities and disabilities as examples. METHOD Recent twin research in the area of learning abilities and disabilities was reviewed. RESULTS Three findings from quantitative genetic research stand out for their far-reaching implications for child… CONTINUE READING
