Question by : What can neuroscience tell us about individual differences in intelligence?
Answer by Ano Nymous
1. location of brain activity for various tasks (i.e. which structures are involved in what)…pretty standard actually but some differences in left-handed vs right-hand people, certain mental disorders (i.e. enlarged ventricles in schizophrenia), brain damage/neurological disorders/trauma/anything medical that might affect the brain/individual’s plasticity
2. which neurotransmitters enhance or inhibit intelligence; optimal levels
3. contributing factors to intelligence and various types of intelligence (i.e. tendency for long-term potentiation or the neuroscience term for the process of “learning”)
4. How all these things might function differently in different people to produce similar or dissimilar results
