Thanks Scott, that was helpful.

So is it the various aspects of cognition that are correlated within the
brain of the subject? Or is it rather that the cognitive *tests* are
"correlated" themselves, because they rely on certain common variables
(such as motor performance)? How can these possibilities be distinguished?
