The Neuroscience of Intelligence new edition provides an accessible guide to advances in neuroscience research and what they reveal about intelligence. Compelling evidence shows that genetics plays a major role as intelligence develops from childhood, and that intelligence test scores correspond strongly to specific features of the brain assessed with neuroimaging. In detailed yet understandable language, Richard J. Haier explains cutting-edge techniques based on DNA and imaging of brain connectivity and function. He dispels common misconceptions – such as the belief that IQ tests are biased or meaningless. Readers will learn about the real possibility of dramatically enhancing intelligence and the positive implications this could have for education and social policy. The text also explores potential controversies surrounding neuro-poverty, neuro-socioeconomic status, and the morality of enhancing intelligence for everyone.
This edition includes new sections on predicting intelligence measures from DNA using polygenic scores. The fact that such prediction is possible further debunks stubborn views that intelligence has little to do with genes and that intelligence cannot be assessed for scientific study. But, more importantly, these findings invigorate efforts to understand how gene expression influences intelligence. They open the door for molecular biology research that could identify salient mechanisms that underlie the cognitive processes necessary for intelligence. It is this kind of research that I believe could someday result in ways to dramatically enhance intelligence for individuals. I still believe that is the ultimate and noble goal of intelligence research.
