    Early Hum Dev 84:331-6. 2008

    J Whittington
    Section of Developmental Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    J Intellect Disabil Res 53:411-8. 2009
    ..This raises the question of whether this distribution arose from a systematic effect of PWS on IQ (hypothesis 1) or whether it was the fortuitous result of random effects (hypothesis 2)...
