The Neuroscience of Intelligence

American psychologist Richard Haier talks in an interview about the role of genetics and various findings from neuroscience on the development of intelligence. Compelling evidence shows that genetics plays a more important role than environment as intelligence develops from childhood, and that intelligence test scores correspond strongly to specific features of the brain assessed with neuroimaging. In understandable language, Richard J. Haier explains cutting-edge techniques based on genetics, DNA, and imaging of brain connectivity and function.
