From Genes to Behavior: What Can Cognitive Genetics Tell Us? / Logos. 2014. № 1 (97). P. 155-170
annotation:  The last years have seen a rapid increase in genetic studies. Cognitive genetics in particular tries to understand the role of various genes in the development and functioning of the human brain and mind. While the gap between genes and behavior seems too great to bridge, many studies have successfully identified genes that are linked to brain function and behavior. This article gives a brief introduction to the various methods used in cognitive genetics and some of the main findings with respect to individual differences, psychiatric disorders, and even speech and language.
Keywords:  cognitive genetics, individual differences, psychiatric disorders, GWAS, twin studies
