Researchers report the frontoparietal network plays a key role in why humans have superior reasoning skills.
Bigger brains don't necessarily mean greater intelligence, at least in mice and rats, a new study reports. The findings could have major implications for the future of research into learning and behavior.
Researchers believe they have identified a gene which links the thickness of gray matter in the brain to intelligence.
Researchers discover some crocodiles use lures to hunt their pray, suggesting they are cleverer than previously believed.
New research involving Vietnam veterans with combat related brain injuries offers the first detailed map of the brain regions which contribute to emotional intelligence.
A new study reveals that most of the specific genes long thought to be linked to intelligence probably have no bearing on one’s IQ. And it may be some time before researchers can identify intelligence’s specific genetic roots.
Research from Washington University in St. Louis suggests that another 10 percent of individual differences in intelligence can be explained by the strength of neural pathways connecting the left lateral prefrontal cortex to the rest of the brain.
