This from a presentation of a paper linking neonatal development to cognitive achievement later in life:
Via Figlio, Guryan, Karbownik, and Roth
FWIW: My twin brother had about 5-7 lbs on me (my guess) until relatively recently. He went to an Ivy and got a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I didn’t. The End.
I vaguely remember hearing that such differences diminish over time and disappear by adulthood.
I think I heard that the test score deficiencies associated with an abnormally low birth weight diminish over time and disappear by adulthood. Since twins on average have lower than normal birth weights, the lighter of the two would have an especially low birth weight, so perhaps these phenomena are one and the same.

it takes allot of effort and allot more mountain dew to get 6000 calories a day…
