This grant established the Consortium on the Genetics of High Cognitive Abilities (GHCA) and supports the first systematic research on the genetics of high cognitive abilities. The project will consist of genomic analysis of existing data from twin studies that have been collected by the GHCA and DNA data collection from 4,000 individuals participating in the Talent Identification Program (TIP) based at Duke University. The research will address the genetic and environmental origins of high cognitive abilities and will be reported in a special issue of the journal Behavior Genetics.
