Standardized tests that measure the present general ability or aptitude for intellectual performance.
The ability to learn and to deal with new situations and to deal effectively with tasks involving abstractions.
The ability to understand and manage emotions and to use emotional knowledge to enhance thought and deal effectively with tasks. Components of emotional intelligence include empathy, self-motivation, self-awareness, self-regulation, and social skill. Emotional intelligence is a measurement of one's ability to socialize or relate to others.
Tests designed to measure intellectual functioning in children and adults.
A state of internal activity of an organism that is a necessary condition before a given stimulus will elicit a class of responses; e.g., a certain level of hunger (drive) must be present before food will elicit an eating response.
Intellectual or mental process whereby an organism obtains knowledge.
Disturbances in mental processes related to learning, thinking, reasoning, and judgment.
The continuous sequential physiological and psychological maturing of an individual from birth up to but not including ADOLESCENCE.
Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.
Theory and development of COMPUTER SYSTEMS which perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. Such tasks may include speech recognition, LEARNING; VISUAL PERCEPTION; MATHEMATICAL COMPUTING; reasoning, PROBLEM SOLVING, DECISION-MAKING, and translation of language.
An individual intelligence test designed primarily for school children to predict school performance and the ability to adjust to everyday demands.
Computer programs based on knowledge developed from consultation with experts on a problem, and the processing and/or formalizing of this knowledge using these programs in such a manner that the problems may be solved.
Approximate, quantitative reasoning that is concerned with the linguistic ambiguity which exists in natural or synthetic language. At its core are variables such as good, bad, and young as well as modifiers such as more, less, and very. These ordinary terms represent fuzzy sets in a particular problem. Fuzzy logic plays a key role in many medical expert systems.
A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.

DNA pooling identifies QTLs on chromosome 4 for general cognitive ability in children. (1/986)

General cognitive ability (g), which is related to many aspects of brain functioning, is one of the most heritable traits in neuroscience. Similarly to other heritable quantitatively distributed traits, genetic influence on g is likely to be due to the combined action of many genes of small effect [quantitative trait loci (QTLs)], perhaps several on each chromosome. We used DNA pooling for the first time to search a chromosome systematically with a dense map of DNA markers for allelic associations with g. We screened 147 markers on chromosome 4 such that 85% of the chromosome were estimated to be within 1 cM of a marker. Comparing pooled DNA from 51 children of high g and from 51 controls of average g, 11 significant QTL associations emerged. The association with three of these 11 markers ( D4S2943, MSX1 and D4S1607 ) replicated using DNA pooling in independent samples of 50 children of extremely high g and 50 controls. Furthermore, all three associations were confirmed when each individual was genotyped separately ( D4S2943, P = 0. 00045; MSX1, P = 0.011; D4S1607, P = 0.019). Identifying specific genes responsible for such QTL associations will open new windows in cognitive neuroscience through which to observe pathways between genes and learning and memory.  (+info)

Evaluating methods for estimating premorbid intellectual ability in closed head injury. (2/986)

OBJECTIVES: The present study examines the utility of three measures of premorbid intellectual functioning in closed head injury, the National adult reading test (NART), the Cambridge contextual reading test (CCRT), and the spot the word test (STW). METHODS: In the first experiment, a group of 25 patients with closed head injury were compared with 50 healthy controls and 20 orthopaedic trauma controls. In the second experiment, the strength of correlation between the premorbid measures and current intellectual level were assessed in 114 healthy adults. RESULTS: The head injured group performed significantly more poorly than both control groups on measures of current intellectual ability. However, no significant differences emerged between the groups on any of the premorbid measures. In the large control sample, both the NART and the CCRT accounted for about 50% of the variance in current verbal intelligence. However, by contrast, the STW only accounted for 29% of the variability in verbal intelligence. Adding demographic variables to the prediction of current intellectual level increased the amount of variance explained to 60% for the NART, 62% for the CCRT, but only 41% for the STW. CONCLUSION: The results provide supportive evidence for the use of the CCRT and NART in estimating premorbid intellectual functioning in patients who have sustained closed head injuries, but suggest caution when employing the STW.  (+info)

A prospective analysis of cognitive function and anticardiolipin antibodies in systemic lupus erythematosus. (3/986)

OBJECTIVE: To prospectively analyze the association between changes in cognitive function and circulating anticardiolipin antibodies (aCL) over a period of 5 years in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: Cognitive function was assessed in 51 unselected female SLE patients at baseline and after a mean followup of 64.5 months (range 52-71 months), using standardized tests of cognitive function, i.e., the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised, the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised, and the California Verbal Learning Test. Circulating IgG, IgA, and IgM aCL and anti-double-stranded DNA (anti-dsDNA) antibody levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay on 4-7 occasions over the same time period. Persistent antibody reactivity was defined as levels more than 2 standard deviations (moderately positive) and more than 5 standard deviations (highly positive) above the mean for normal controls over the duration of the study. Changes in overall cognitive performance and in raw scores on individual cognitive tests were compared in patients who were persistently positive or negative for aCL. RESULTS: At baseline 11 patients (22%) were cognitively impaired, compared with 7 (14%) at followup. Between 16% and 37% of patients had persistently elevated aCL levels of different isotypes. There was no significant difference in the prevalence of overall cognitive impairment in patients who were persistently positive for aCL compared with those who were not. In contrast, over the period of study, patients who had persistent IgG aCL positivity had a reduction in psychomotor speed, and patients who had persistent IgA aCL positivity had a reduction in conceptual reasoning and executive ability. Similar associations with anti-dsDNA antibodies were not found. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that IgG and IgA aCL may be responsible for long-term subtle deterioration in cognitive function in patients with SLE.  (+info)

Neuropsychological sequelae of haemolytic uraemic syndrome. Investigators of the HUS Cognitive Study. (4/986)

BACKGROUND: Severe haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) in childhood can cause stroke, hemiplegia, cortical blindness, and psychomotor retardation. These outcomes are evident at the time of discharge immediately after the acute illness. Less is known about the neuropsychological outcomes of less severely affected children who recover from acute HUS. AIMS: This multicentre case control study investigated the hypothesis that children who survive an acute episode of HUS without recognizable neurological injuries have greater impairment of cognitive, academic, and behavioural functions than controls. DESIGN: Children with HUS were eligible if they had no evidence of severe neurological dysfunction when discharged from one of six Canadian hospitals. Controls had been admitted to hospital for a non-HUS illness and were matched by age, sex, first language, and socioeconomic status. All subjects underwent evaluation of behaviour, academic achievement, cognitive function, and verbal abilities using standardised tests administered by a psychometrist blinded to the case or control status. RESULTS: Ninety-one case control pairs were enrolled. No important differences between patients with HUS and paired controls were evident on tests of IQ, behaviour, verbal abilities, or academic achievement. There was no increased risk of attention deficit disorder among patients with HUS. There was no correlation between the severity of acute renal failure and neuropsychological measures, although scores on some verbal ability tests were lower in those with the highest serum creatinine concentrations during illness. CONCLUSIONS: Children discharged from hospital without apparent neurological injury after an episode of acute HUS do not have an increased risk of subclinical problems with learning, behaviour, or attention.  (+info)

Outcome of very severe birth asphyxia. (5/986)

The aim of this study was to establish the outcome of very severe birth asphyxia in a group of babies intensively resuscitated at birth. 48 infants, born between 1966 and 1971 inclusive, were selected; 15 were apparently stillborn and 33 had not established spontaneous respirations by 20 minutes after birth. One-half of them died, but 3 to 7 years later three-quarters of the survivors are apparently normal. Later handicap was associated with factors leading to prolonged partial intrapartum asphyxia, while acute periods of more complete asphyxia were not necessarily harmful.  (+info)

Spatial attention deficits in patients with acquired or developmental cerebellar abnormality. (6/986)

Recent imaging and clinical studies have challenged the concept that the functional role of the cerebellum is exclusively in the motor domain. We present evidence of slowed covert orienting of visuospatial attention in patients with developmental cerebellar abnormality (patients with autism, a disorder in which at least 90% of all postmortem cases reported to date have Purkinje neuron loss), and in patients with cerebellar damage acquired from tumor or stroke. In spatial cuing tasks, normal control subjects across a wide age range were able to orient attention within 100 msec of an attention-directing cue. Patients with cerebellar damage showed little evidence of having oriented attention after 100 msec but did show the effects of attention orienting after 800-1200 msec. These effects were demonstrated in a task in which results were independent of the motor response. In this task, smaller cerebellar vermal lobules VI-VII (from magnetic resonance imaging) were associated with greater attention-orienting deficits. Although eye movements may also be disrupted in patients with cerebellar damage, abnormal gaze shifting cannot explain the timing and nature of the attention-orienting deficits reported here. These data may be consistent with evidence from animal models that suggest damage to the cerebellum disrupts both the spatial encoding of a location for an attentional shift and the subsequent gaze shift. These data are also consistent with a model of cerebellar function in which the cerebellum supports a broad spectrum of brain systems involved in both nonmotor and motor function.  (+info)

How can we boost IQs of "dull children"?: A late adoption study. (7/986)

From 5,003 files of adopted children, 65 deprived children, defined as abused and/or neglected during infancy, were strictly selected with particular reference to two criteria: (i) They were adopted between 4 and 6 years of age, and (ii) they had an IQ <86 (mean = 77, SD = 6.3) before adoption. The average IQs of adopted children in lower and higher socioeconomic status (SES) families were 85 (SD = 17) and 98 (SD = 14.6), respectively, at adolescence (mean age = 13.5 years). The results show (i) a significant gain in IQ dependent on the SES of the adoptive families (mean = 7.7 and mean = 19.5 IQ points in low and high SES, respectively), (ii) IQs after adoption are significantly correlated with IQs before adoption, and (iii) during adolescence, verbal IQs are significantly lower than performance IQs.  (+info)

A genomic screen of autism: evidence for a multilocus etiology. (8/986)

We have conducted a genome screen of autism, by linkage analysis in an initial set of 90 multiplex sibships, with parents, containing 97 independent affected sib pairs (ASPs), with follow-up in 49 additional multiplex sibships, containing 50 ASPs. In total, 519 markers were genotyped, including 362 for the initial screen, and an additional 157 were genotyped in the follow-up. As a control, we also included in the analysis unaffected sibs, which provided 51 discordant sib pairs (DSPs) for the initial screen and 29 for the follow-up. In the initial phase of the work, we observed increased identity by descent (IBD) in the ASPs (sharing of 51.6%) compared with the DSPs (sharing of 50.8%). The excess sharing in the ASPs could not be attributed to the effect of a small number of loci but, rather, was due to the modest increase in the entire distribution of IBD. These results are most compatible with a model specifying a large number of loci (perhaps >/=15) and are less compatible with models specifying +info)

The intelligence tests are specifically designed to measure the aptitudes, knowledge and capacities of the tested subject. They are composed of a group of questions and very common exercises for any individual, called items and whose function is quantitatively determine the knowledge and skills of the tested subject. These tests have been done in a way in which a specific subject is compared with another group of subjects who have undergone the same test. Usually, the items that are written down in the paper are in difficulty order and, as the questions go on, they get more and more complicated for the subject.. The first intelligence tests ever token, were made according to the intelligence quotient concept, and according to the criteria of Binet y Simon in 1905, and its purpose was to identify those children who needed special education.. Nowadays, theses tests are still been taken, but with some slight modifications. The intelligence quotient is a relationship between the chronological and ...

Class action suit on behalf of African American pupils placed in classes for MR. The school district was unable to convince the court that IQ tests were valid for the purpose of placing African American children in MR classes. During the second phase, the judge found that IQ tests were racially and culturally discriminatory. The judge permanently forbid the state from using standardized intelligence tests to identify African American children without permission from the court or for any special education program except state-supported gifted and talented program. Then the judge later ordered that AA children can be given IQ tests with parent consent, although the California State Department of Education continued to prohibit its ...

The strength of the association and the large sample size suggest that our finding is unlikely to be due to chance. The association was little changed when we assessed confounding by mental illness by excluding those with psychiatric diagnoses at baseline. The association was most pronounced in the five years after conscription. If this difference is not simply a chance finding it may reflect the effect of undetected mental illness at conscription on both test performance and subsequent risk of suicide over the initial years of follow up (reverse causality). Alternatively, it is possible that young adulthood (age 18-23 years) is the age of greatest vulnerability to any adverse effects of low mental ability, perhaps in relation to entering the job market or finding a partner.. The strongest associations of intelligence test scores with suicide were among people with highly educated parents. We have previously reported a similar finding with schizophrenia.3 This association must be interpreted ...

Originally the media were very clear and simple. They stuck with the headlines. We have put out huge amounts of CO2 which has raised the temperature and will melt the ice and raise the sea levels. Then the internet came along, plus a few more detailed reports, which focussed in far more depth and showed that the one thing we knew was the CO2 level, which has now officially risen around 50%. But the rest of it wasnt quite as clear. The temperature varied depending on who you read, and how it was measured and then adjusted in ways Im sure even their peers dont always understand. The sea level however was only rising the same amount it had for centuries, around 8 inches a century. That clearly could not be dangerous, as its always been that way, and has not changed. Working back, if the sea level, far easier to measure and more stable than the rapidly fluctuating temperature, is not actually rising any more, then the two factors required to make it rise, thermal expansion and land ice melting, ...

The width of blood vessels in the retina, located at the back of the eye, may indicate brain health years before the onset of dementia and other deficits, according to a new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.. Research shows that younger people who score low on intelligence tests, such as IQ, tend to be at higher risk for poorer health and shorter lifespan, but factors like socioeconomic status and health behaviors dont fully account for the relationship..

So the researchers decided to test 30 autistic children and 30 autistic adults with a different IQ test called the Ravens Progressive Matrices test, which is written rather than oral. Healthy children and adults performed similarly on both the Wechsler and the Raven test. But speaking autistics scored up to 30 percentile points higher on the Raven test than the Wechsler test, the researchers reported here 19 February at the annual meeting for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (which publishes ScienceNOW). Thirty percentile points could raise a retarded person to normal or a normal one to a superintelligent one, says Mottron ...
In the study, individuals watched brief video clips of black and white bars moving across a computer screen. Their sole task was to identify which direction the bars drifted: to the right or to the left. The bars were presented in three sizes, with the smallest version restricted to the central circle where human motion perception is known to be optimal, an area roughly the width of the thumb when the hand is extended. Participants also took a standardized intelligence test.. As expected, people with higher IQ scores were faster at catching the movement of the bars when observing the smallest image. The results support prior research showing that individuals with higher IQs make simple perceptual judgments swifter and have faster reflexes. Being quick witted and quick on the draw generally go hand in hand, says Melnick. But the tables turned when presented with the larger images. The higher a persons IQ, the slower they were at detecting movement. From previous research, we expected that ...

Can a machine wonder? Can a machine be the one asking questions and rating the answers in Turing ...

I own a unit in a block of units in a southern suburb named Orelia. It is not the Dalkeith (rich folks suburb) of the south and the residents dont worry too much about keeping things neat. On rubbish collection days all manner of junk is tossed out the front next to the bins....mattresses etc. The truck cannot collect stuff on the ground as it has one driver and a hydraulic fork pickup to lift the bins and tip the contents into the truck, so the rest of the junk is left on the roadside outside the units. Another intelligence test is the placement of the bins. Many of them are so close together that when attempting to pick up one bin the next one is knocked over. The driver must get very frustrated at having to climb down, stand the bin up and collected the spilled smellies. I believe he has stopped collecting those bins which are going to cause him trouble...I would ...

The concept of intelligence has been widely debated throughout time following the inception of the IQ test. Many theories have been proposed although no single definition of intelligence has been universally accepted with disagreement between researchers from biological and psychometric fields. The psychometric approach, which is the dominant field with respect to public attention and research, attempts to measure intelligence by means such as the Stanford-Binet or Wechsler tests. General intelligence is measured on these tests by including many different items which utilise various aspects of reasoning; for example the subject may be required to complete verbal and nonverbal items which assess spatial abilities, arithmetic and literacy (Neisser et al., 1996). The aim of this essay is to examine whether standard intelligence tests actually measure intelligence. The conventional psychometric definition of intelligence revolves around an individuals generalised ability to control oneself, learn ...
In recent years broad community of researchers has emerged, focusing on the original ambitious goals of the AI field - the creation and study of software or hardware systems with general intelligence comparable to, and ultimately perhaps greater than, that of human beings. This paper surveys this diverse community and its progress. Approaches to defining the concept of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) are reviewed including mathematical formalisms, engineering, and biology inspired perspectives. The spectrum of designs for AGI systems includes systems with symbolic, emergentist, hybrid and universalist characteristics. Metrics for general intelligence are evaluated, with a conclusion that, although metrics for assessing the achievement of human-level AGI may be relatively straightforward (e.g. the Turing Test, or a robot that can graduate from elementary school or university), metrics for assessing partial progress remain more controversial and problematic. ...
To examine the relation of childhood intelligence (IQ) test results with obesity in middle age and weight gain across the life course. We analysed data from the National Child Development (1958) Study, a prospective cohort study of 17 414 births to parents residing in Great Britain in the late 1950s. Childhood IQ was measured at age 11 years and body mass index (BMI), an indicator of adiposity, was assessed at 16, 23, 33 and 42 years of age. Logistic regression (in which BMI was categorised into obese and non-obese) and structural equation growth curve models (in which BMI was retained as a continuous variable) were used to estimate the relation between childhood IQ and adult obesity, and childhood IQ and weight gain, respectively. In unadjusted analyses, lower childhood IQ scores were associated with an increased prevalence of adult obesity at age 42 years. This relation was somewhat stronger in women (ORper SD decrease in IQ score [95% CI]: 1.38 [1.26, 1.50]) than men (1.26 [1.15, 1.38]). This
source. If this is true, whats the explanation?. According to some current genetics researchers, it is believed that intelligence is primarily inherited on the X chromosome (source). Having two X chromosomes, women get an averaging out of two different intelligence profiles. So if one is high, and one is low, they end up somewhere in the middle. Men however just have the influence of one X. If its low, having no second X to average that out, they end up with low intelligence. The authors of this idea link the genes associated with non specific mental retardation with intelligence. There is evidence for non specific mental retardation being linked to the X chromosome, i.e. passed down by the mother (source 1, source 2).. Concluding, I would imagine that low intelligence males (and females) would be less likely to take intelligence tests on the internet. Assuming there are more males with lower intelligence, my test results are not going to be able to pick up on that phenomenon. However, my ...
General intelligence comprises the essential, domain-independent skills necessary for acquiring a wide range of domain-specific knowledge -- the ability to learn anything. Achieving this with artificial general intelligence (AGI) requires a highly adaptive, general-purpose system that can autonomously acquire an extremely wide range of specific knowledge and skills and can improve its own cognitive ability through self-directed learning. This chapter in the forthcoming book, Real AI: New Approaches to Artificial General Intelligence, describes the requirements and conceptual design of a prototype AGI system.
Tests of fluid intelligence predict success in a wide range of cognitive activities. Much uncertainty has surrounded brain lesions producing deficits in these tests, with standard group comparisons delivering no clear result. Based on findings from functional imaging, we propose that the uncertainty of lesion data may arise from the specificity and complexity of the relevant neural circuit. Fluid intelligence tests give a characteristic pattern of activity in posterolateral frontal, dorsomedial frontal, and midparietal cortex. To test the causal role of these regions, we examined fluid intelligence in 80 patients with focal cortical lesions. Damage to each of the proposed regions predicted fluid intelligence loss, whereas damage outside these regions was not predictive. The results suggest that coarse group comparisons (e.g., frontal vs. posterior) cannot show the neural underpinnings of fluid intelligence tests. Instead, deficits reflect the extent of damage to a restricted but complex brain circuit
Intelligence tests are among the most potent predictors of job performance and school success. Using a standard measure of intelligence, such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scales or the Stanford Binet Intelligence Scales, provides such predictive power. The Wechsler and Stanford Binet scales are collections of individual measures, which together assess most aspects of intelligence. Using a battery or collection of intelligence tests provides ever more useful results. Tests, such as a continuous performance test, measure attention over time. Tests, such as the Wisconsin Card Sorting Task, measure learning and adaptation. Tests, such as the NEPSY, are able to measure language fluency and various aspects of memory and learning. A battery of such tests covers all of the above listed aspects of intelligence, providing a description of strengths and weaknesses. Using a thoughtful collection of tests, a persons intelligence can be meaningfully described. Read about past misuses and current ...
Objectives To examine the association between intelligence measured in childhood and leading causes of death in men and women over the life course.Design Prospective cohort study based on a whole population of participants born in Scotland in 1936 and linked to mortality data across 68 years of follow-up.Setting Scotland.Participants 33 536 men and 32 229 women who were participants in the Scottish Mental Survey of 1947 (SMS1947) and who could be linked to cause of death data up to December 2015.Main outcome measures Cause specific mortality, including from coronary heart disease, stroke, specific cancer types, respiratory disease, digestive disease, external causes, and dementia.Results Childhood intelligence was inversely associated with all major causes of death. The age and sex adjusted hazard ratios (and 95% confidence intervals) per 1 SD (about 15 points) advantage in intelligence test score were strongest for respiratory disease (0.72, 0.70 to 0.74), coronary heart disease (0.75, 0.73 to 0.77),
An IQ test is a psychological measure of a persons intelligence quotient (IQ). Intelligence Quotient, or IQ, is a theoretical construct used by psychologists within standardized tests as a means of describing ones intelligence level.

Pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs at an average rate of 180 per 100,000 children who are hospitalized for head injury within the United States (Schwartz et al., 2003). Bilinguals are a large proportion of the population living in the United States and in Southern California, particularly. If children who are bilingual incur a TBI, will they have even more difficulty than monolinguals with language tasks because they have a smaller vocabulary base? This study aims to further elucidate whether verbal memory will be more severely impacted than nonverbal memory in this same bilingual pediatric TBI population. 18 children (M age =11.67 years (SD =3.7), 61% males, 50% bilingual) were assessed as part of a longitudinal study evaluating neuropsychological outcomes in moderate/ severe pediatric TBI at 3 m (Time 1) & 12 m (Time 2) post-injury. Multiple mixed design ANCOVAs were conducted in order to assess differences within and between bilingual/monolingual IQs and verbal and nonverbal ...
There is no rigorous proof that General Intelligence as per the proposed definition is possible by all Turing Machines, but it is a worthy research problem, since all of the above listed failure causes except probably the requirement of some non-deterministic yet non-random element are likely to be overcome by computers.. The above list however, is a fairly rigorous proof that human beings do not exhibit reliable general intelligence. The human impulse and current popular belief, humanism, rebels against this idea, but it is nonetheless true.. The last question then reverts to, How can we know that everything that can be programmed in a Turing Machine can be accomplished by a human brain? The answer to that question is answered by this goal, inspired by the first and last attainment failure causes listed above: You are stuck on an island with 1,000 pads of paper and 1,000,000 sharpened pencils with food and water and shelter but no computer or calculator, and the goal is to calculate pi to ...
General intelligence (g) captures the performance variance shared across cognitive tasks and correlates with real-world success. Yet it remains debated whether g reflects the combined performance of brain systems involved in these tasks or draws on specialized systems mediating their interactions. Here we investigated the neural substrates of g in 241 patients with focal brain damage using voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping. A hierarchical factor analysis across multiple cognitive tasks was used to derive a robust measure of g. Statistically significant associations were found between g and damage to a remarkably circumscribed albeit distributed network in frontal and parietal cortex, critically including white matter association tracts and frontopolar cortex. We suggest that general intelligence draws on connections between regions that integrate verbal, visuospatial, working memory, and executive processes.. ...

Although there is proof that intelligence is at least partly genetic, scientists still havent found the specific gene or genes that are responsible for a persons intelligence. It is likely, since there seem to be different types of intelligences, that intellectual abilities do not rely solely on one gene but on the interaction of many genes. In order to identify these genes, scientists would have to collect a large group of people who score above-average on intelligence tests, sequence their chromosomes, and analyze them to look for similarities among the group. This is easier said than done, scientist would have to analyze the entire genome of a person and what makes it all the more difficult is that intelligence is made up of different factors and there is no clear, exact definition of what intelligence is. ...

Malleability of intelligence describes the processes by which intelligence can increase or decrease over time and is not static. These changes may come as a result of genetics, pharmacological factors, psychological factors, behavior, or environmental conditions. Malleable intelligence may refer to changes in cognitive skills, memory, reasoning, or muscle memory related motor skills. In general, the majority changes in human intelligence occurs at either the onset of development, during the critical period, or during old age (see Neuroplasticity). Charles Spearman, who coined the general intelligence factor g, described intelligence as ones ability to adapt to his environment with a set of useful skills including reasoning and understanding patterns and relationships. He believed individuals highly developed in one intellectual ability tended to be highly developed at other intellectual abilities. A more intelligent individual was thought to be able to more easily accommodate experiences ...

Race and Intelligence is a controversial area of anthropology and intelligence research studying the nature, origins and consequences of racial and ethnic group differences in intelligence tests scores and other constructed measures of cognitive ability.. The research is founded upon several controversial assumptions. These include the proposition that race is concordant with a meaningful genetic category that is seperable from other factors, and that intelligence is measurable and dominated by a unitary cognitive ability as opposed to being one of several abilities, which may or may not be measurable by present psychometric tests. The validity of race and intelligence research is closely tied to the validity of the (often controversial) method of testing intelligence via IQ.. Nectar, Ive removed the measured by passage and qualified the preceding sentence with the word constructed instead, which is hopefully more succinct. I disagree that the version contains to much criticism. Really, it ...
Researchers at the Universities of Edinburgh and Queensland and Aberdeen have also suggested that many of the genes that affect intelligence in childhood also influence intelligence in old age, according to the study published in Nature.. Identifying genetic influences on intelligence could help us to understand the relationship between knowledge and problem solving and an individuals outcomes in life, and especially to understand why some people age better than others in terms of intelligence.. The study was conducted within The University of Edinburgh Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, part of the Lifelong Health and Wellbeing Cross-Council Programme , with funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC).. The researchers combined DNA analysis with data from people who took intelligence tests ...
In response to the controversy surrounding Murray and Herrnsteins The Bell Curve, the American Psychological Associations Board of Scientific Affairs established a task force in 1995 to write a consensus statement on the state of intelligence research which could be used by all sides as a basis for discussion. The task force concluded that IQ scores do have high predictive validity for individual differences in school achievement. They confirmed the predictive validity of IQ for adult occupational status, even when variables such as education and family background have been statistically controlled. They agreed that individual (but specifically not population) differences in intelligence are substantially influenced by genetics. They agreed that there are no significant differences between the average IQ scores of males and females. They reported that there is little evidence to show that childhood diet influences intelligence, except in cases of severe malnutrition. The task force agreed that ...
It is clear why alternative intelligence, like alternative facts, would be appealing to Trump. He distrusts U.S. intelligence and already has historically bad relations with the intelligence community - no other U.S. president has compared U.S. agencies to Nazis. He tends to dismiss views contrary to his own as fake news. And his opinions on world affairs seem largely informed by television, not intelligence briefings. In this atmosphere, although the National Security Council is now in a position to tell truth to power, it may find itself bypassed by others in the White House or the media who provide the president with pleasing alternative intelligence. In Trumps White House, it seems, the council risks being bypassed precisely because it tells truth to power.. ...
OBJECTIVE: To identify type 1 diabetes-related predictors of change in the neuropsychological profiles of children over the first 2 years of the illness. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Children (n = 116) aged 3-14 years were assessed soon after diagnosis and re-evaluated 2 years later to examine relationships between illness variables, such as age of onset and metabolic control history, and changes in neuropsychological status over the first 2 years of type 1 diabetes. RESULTS: Illness variables were significant predictors of change in neuropsychological test scores within 2 years of onset of type 1 diabetes. Age of onset of type 1 diabetes predicted negative change on Performance Intelligence Quotient, whereas both recurrent severe hypoglycemia and chronic hyperglycemia were associated with reduced memory and learning capacity. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that the relationship between metabolic control and neuropsychological risk is nonlinear in that children with either recurrent severe ...

There are various measures that assess fluid intelligence. The Cattell Culture Fair IQ test, the Raven Progressive Matrices (RPM), and the performance subscale of the WAIS are measures of Gf. The RPM[18] is one of the most commonly used measures of fluid abilities. It is a non-verbal multiple choice test. Participants have to complete a series of drawings by identifying relevant features based on the spatial organization of an array of objects, and choosing one object that matches one or more of the identified features.[19] This task assesses the ability to consider one or more relationships between mental representations or relational reasoning. Propositional analogies and semantic decision tasks are also used to assess relational reasoning.[20][21]. Standardized IQ tests such as those used in psychoeducational assessment also include tests of fluid intelligence. In the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities,[22] Gf is assessed by two tests: Concept Formation (Test 5) in the Standard ...

Our findings of a higher risk of AUD according to lower draft board intelligence test score in men are in line with prospective conscript studies suggesting an inverse association between intelligence and alcohol-related disorders.11 13-15 A possible explanation for the observed protective effect of high intelligence is that more intelligent people are better able to handle a prolonged high intake of alcohol without actually developing AUD. Some prospective studies have shown that more intelligent people are less likely to abstain from alcohol, are more likely to have higher alcohol intake and to drink frequently in adult life.7 30 31 It is likely that people with greater cognitive resources are better at assessing when their drinking behaviour is getting risky and they may also be better at assessing how to reduce their alcohol intake. Such an explanation is in keeping with literature suggesting that the ability to change ones own health behaviour is associated with cognitive ability.32 33 ...
At age seven, the children were given the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children test. From this we were able to ascertain that the higher the SES, the less inhibiting environmental factors there were, and the IQs were higher than those with lower SES.. The Bell Curve Doesnt Ring as Loud. Now that the findings of The Bell Curve have been corrected, it is time to get educators, parents, and policy makers to get on board. Hopefully, those still thinking the original findings are right are few and far between. Not to disregard the conclusions in their entirety, it was correct that tests can determine IQ, but not like people may think.. IQ Tests. IQ tests can provide a function, but the score should not be used as a defining factor of complete intelligence. These tests can be a predictor of future success, but not a guarantee. IQ tests actually measure two types of intelligence: fluid and crystallized. The intelligences work together, but where crystallized intelligence cannot affect fluid, the ...
An overseer, as the term is used here, is one who investigates intelligence performance by conducting apostmortemexamination of a high-profile intelligence failure. Such investigations are carried out by Congress, the Intelligence Community staff, and CIA or DI management. For those outside the executive branch who do not regularly read the intelligence product, this sort of retrospective evaluation of known intelligence failures is a principal basis for judgments about the quality of intelligence analysis.. A fundamental question posed in anypostmorteminvestigation of intelligence failure is this: Given the information that was available at the time, should analysts have been able to foresee what was going to happen? Unbiased evaluation of intelligence performance depends upon the ability to provide an unbiased answer to this question.152. Unfortunately, once an event has occurred, it is impossible to erase from our mind the knowledge of that event and reconstruct what our thought processes ...

A new study - titled Global Connectivity of Prefrontal Cortex Predicts Cognitive Control and Intelligence - was published just last week. In it, my co-authors and I describe our research showing that connectivity with a particular part of the prefrontal cortex can predict how intelligent someone is.. We measured intelligence using fluid intelligence tests, which measure your ability to solve novel visual puzzles. It turns out that scores on these tests correlate with important life outcomes like academic and job success. So, finding a neuroscientific factor underlying fluid intelligence might have some fairly important implications.. It turns out that its relatively unclear exactly what fluid intelligence tests actually test (what helps you solve novel puzzles, exactly?), so we also measured a more basic cognitive control ability thought to be related to fluid intelligence - working memory. This measures your ability to maintain and manipulate information in mind in a goal-directed ...
In the latest issue of Scientific American, I have a feature on the biology of intelligence. (Read it online at or Ive been fascinated by the subject for a long time, and I decided recently that the time was right to put together an article.. Whats the news? That there is no news.. Allow me to explain…. A lot of experts on intelligence were very busy late last year trying to clear up some misconceptions about the nature of intelligence in the wake of Nobelist James Watsons remarks about race and IQ. (The best example I came across at the time was an hour-long discussion that aired in December 2007 on the show On Point. You can listen to it here.) It would be a mistake, however, to conclude that there is no such thing as intelligence-by which I mean something that scientists actively study, testing hypotheses and finding significant results. Intelligence tests do identify a difference among people that has predictive power, and that difference can be linked-in ...
BACKGROUND: Intelligence is related to both height and body mass index (BMI) at various stages of life. Several studies have demonstrated longitudinal relationships between these measures, but none has established whether height and intelligence, or BMI and intelligence are linked from childhood through to older age. METHODS: We assessed the relations between these measures over an interval of up to 67 years using data from the 36-Day Sample, an initially-representative sample of Scottish people born in 1936, assessed at age 11 years (N = 6,291) and again at 77-78 years (N = 722). This paper focuses on the 423 participants (6.7 % of the original sample) who provided relevant data in late adulthood. RESULTS: Height and intelligence were significantly positively associated in childhood (β = .23) and late adulthood (β = .21-.29). Longitudinal correlations also showed that childhood intelligence predicted late-adulthood height (β = .20), and childhood height predicted late-adulthood cognitive ...
In general, from 1980 until the present, intelligence grew at a faster rate than defense when defense spending was going up and decreased at a slower rate when defense spending was going down. As a result, intelligence funding is now at a level 80 percent above where it was in 1980, while defense overall (other than intelligence) is now 4 percent below its 1980 level. Because the Secretary of Defense in consultation with the Director of Central Intelligence has largely determined1 the size of the annual budget for intelligence vis-à-vis the remainder of the defense budget, one conclusion that might be drawn is that successive Secretaries since 1980 have believed that intelligence should be funded at a somewhat higher rate than defense (regardless of the rate of increase or decrease for defense as a whole). Based upon the Commissions interviews, it appears that, in practice, most Secretaries have begun with the amount appropriated for intelligence the previous year, taken into account whether ...
Intellectual Quotient (IQ) is an imperfect predictor of many outcomes, such as academic performance and lifetime earning potential. But researchers continue to find a correlation between air quality and childrens performance on IQ tests. The accuracy of IQ test scores as direct indicators of future academic and financial success is controversial. Indeed, IQ tests vary in competency and dont always accurately portray the intelligence of an individual. However, many experts still find it be a valuable measurement tool.
SINAPSE is developing a world class future in medical imaging for Scotland by drawing on the combined expertise of seven Scottish universities.
Creatine supplementation is in widespread use to enhance sports-fitness performance, and has been trialled successfully in the treatment of neurological, neuromuscular and atherosclerotic disease. Creatine plays a pivotal role in brain energy homeostasis, being a temporal and spatial buffer for cytosolic and mitochondrial pools of the cellular energy currency, adenosine triphosphate and its regulator, adenosine diphosphate. In this work, we tested the hypothesis that oral creatine supplementation (5 g d-1 for six weeks) would enhance intelligence test scores and working memory performance in 45 young adult, vegetarian subjects in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over design. Creatine supplementation had a significant positive effect (p , 0.0001) on both working memory (backward digit span) and intelligence (Ravens Advanced Progressive Matrices), both tasks that require speed of processing. These findings underline a dynamic and significant role of brain energy capacity in influencing ...
Twin studies of intelligence have reported high heritability values. However, heritability values do not necessarily correspond to how much intelligence is affected by genetic factors, and these studies are based on questionable assumptions.[135]. Intelligence as tested by IQ tests is generally considered to be highly heritable. Psychometricians have found that intelligence is substantially heritable within populations, with 30-50% of variance in IQ scores in early childhood being attributable to genetic factors in analyzed US populations, increasing to 75-80% by late adolescence.[47][132] In biology heritability is defined as the ratio of variation attributable to genetic differences in an observable trait to the traits total observable variation. The heritability of a trait describes the proportion of variation in the trait that is attributable to genetic factors within a particular population. A heritability of 1 indicates that variation correlates fully with genetic variation and a ...

  • After adjusting for the influence of test motivation, however, the predictive validity of intelligence for life outcomes was significantly diminished, particularly for nonacademic outcomes. (
  • Collectively, our findings suggest that, under low-stakes research conditions, some individuals try harder than others, and, in this context, test motivation can act as a third-variable confound that inflates estimates of the predictive validity of intelligence for life outcomes. (
  • The predictive power of IQ for such diverse outcomes suggests intelligence as a parsimonious explanation for individual and group differences in overall competence. (
  • Further, we hypothesize that test motivation is a third-variable confound that tends to inflate, rather than erode, the predictive power of IQ scores for later-life outcomes. (
  • Future research into the predictive validity of the tests as well as certain modifications of some of the multiple-choice items are suggested. (
  • However, little is known regarding the predictive validity of well-established intelligence tests for school grades. (

  • Genetic differences between people account for up to half of the variation in intelligence, according to a study of more than 3,000 individuals. (
  • It has been getting clearer and clearer that any genetic contribution to traits on which people differ-like height and weight-comes about from large numbers of gene differences, each with very small effects," said Prof Ian Deary of the University of Edinburgh, who led the research on intelligence. (

  • The idea that IQ tests could replace school attainment in university admissions is suggested by testers' argument that IQ scores must be valid tests of intelligence precisely because they correlate with school attainment. (
  • The direction of bias depends on the relation between test-taking motivation and life outcomes: If test motivation does not derive from relatively stable and adaptive traits, then the influence of test motivation will erode IQ-outcome associations, indicating that current inferences about the effects of intelligence on success in life are spuriously low.
