Human intelligence question cracked using brain variability

It’s said that variety is the spice of life, but it may also be a good measure of human intellect. What specifically makes someone clever is something that has long puzzled philosophers and, more recently, neuroscientists. Now, new research published in the journal Brain has for the first time quantified intelligence in humans by measuring variability in the brain. All in the mind The collaborative research project between Warwick University and numerous Chinese institutions defines this variability as alterations in specific regions of the brain changing neural connections with other parts of the brain more frequently. To test this they measured the resting state MRI of 1080 individuals from around the world to measure blood flow changes in order to evaluate interactions within the brain. The team discovered that individuals with…
