How brain structure relates to intelligence, why people have different mental aptitudes and abilities, and what makes “smart” brains work the way they do.

What Does a Smart Brain Look Like?

Now, for the first time, intelligence researchers are beginning to put together a bigger picture. Imaging studies are uncovering clues to how neural structure and function give rise to individual differences in intelligence. The results so far are confirming a view many experts have had for decades: not all brains work in the same way.
