Medical Relation between intelligence and sleep, immune system or inheritance?

  1. Nov 11, 2008 #1
    Does anyone know studies which link intelligence to
    a) sleep (duration)
    b) immune system (weak/strong)
    c) inheritance (how much inherited, from father/mother?)
    I vaguely remember hearing some results to each of these topics.

    I just know I've been to a website with correlates of intelligence -- results from hundreds of research papers summarized into a standard format. But I can't seem to find it now.

    As for (c), there's lots of information on that. Searching for "heritability of g" gives thousands of websites like

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heritability_of_IQ

    If you have access to a college library you can find many papers on the subject as well. Even without, I think PubMed is accessible to the general public (?).
