A new study of human intelligence is not confined to a special area of the brain, but is the result of multiple brain areas working in concert.
The study was published in the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences, where Richard Haier of the University of California, and Rex Jung of the University of New Mexico, proposed a new theory that identifies areas of the brain that work together to determine the intelligence of a person.
Haier says, "Genetic research has shown that levels of intelligence are inherited, so as genes work through biology, there must be a biological basis for intelligence."
The analysis of 37 studies of brain imaging suggests that intelligence is related both to the size or a particular brain structure, but with how efficiently information travels through the body.
For them the level of intelligence is based on how efficient the brain in making their areas communicate with each other.
As scientists say, if you can discover how the brain processes information, so could have applications for treating people with low IQ or mental retardation, or to increase the normal people.
