Abstract

The question of how genetic variation contributes to individual differences in cognitive ability has fascinated scientists for decades. Arguably, executive control processes mediated by the frontal cortex are critical to our uniquely human ability for voluntary action, decision and will. Using a variety of novel innovations, this project will provide fundamental knowledge by developing a unique link between genetic, behavioural and neural indices of executive control.
