    ..e., lower levels of cognitive reserve. Our results provide support for the hypothesis that cognitive reserve moderates the relationship between brain structure and cognition in middle age, well before the onset of dementia...

    Department of Public Health, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland

    Neuropsychologia 47:1294-301. 2009
    ..Concordance for left-handedness in twins is rare, and accordingly, very large samples are needed to detect the familial effects. Our results show that forced-handedness can have an effect on estimates of genetic effects...
