  • British children were faster than Chinese on those RTs that correlated with IQ among Chinese, and vice versa. If reaction times measure neurological processes, white children have better Chinese brains than the Chinese, and vice versa. A more plausible explanation of these results would be to posit cultural differences in what IQ measures, or RT strategies, or both.
