This site aims to popularize scientific studies on intelligence, its biological, genetic, evolutionary bases, its social importance and the individual and ethnic differences. It gives the most recent data and studies on the issue, without compromise for ideology or political correctness. Research in the field grown considerably since the s. Read first: FAQ Intelligence or Continuer la. There have been two rather different approaches to the study and measurement of emotional intelligence. The original approach was developed by John Mayer and Peter Salovey, who studied emotional intelligence as an ability to perceive and understand one's emotions and those of others (e.g., Mayer & Salovey, ).
Inquiries into Human Faculty and its Development, More than a century after Galton's observation, twin studies remain a favorite tool of behavioral geneticists. Researchers have used twin studies to try to disentangle the environmental and genetic backgrounds of a cornucopia of traits, from aggression to intelligence to schizophrenia to. Intelligence is challenging to study, in part because it can be defined and measured in different ways. Most definitions of intelligence include the ability to learn from experiences and adapt to changing environments. Elements of intelligence include the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, and understand complex ideas.
Games People Play: The Psychology of Human Relationships by Eric Berne, M.D. Whether consciously or not, people are constantly playing mind games with one another – it’s a natural, even if often undesirable, trait of human psychology. However, the negative impact of these games can be mitigated by learning to recognize, sidestep and. A major study into the genetics of human intelligence has given scientists their richest insight yet into the biology that underpins our cognitive skills.

The book is divided into six parts as follows: Part I presents the most recent higher-stream analysis of cognitive abilities, Part II deals with biological aspects of g, such as research on brain imaging, glucose uptake, working memory, reaction time, inspection time, and other biological correlates, and concludes with the latest findings in g-related molecular s: 3.
This book is a comprehensive survey of our scientific knowledge about human intelligence, written by a researcher who has spent more than 30 years studying the field. It takes a non-ideological view of a topic in which, too often, writings are dominated by a single theory or social viewpoint/5.

Biological theories emphasize the relationship between intelligence, and the brain and its functions. Numerous relationships have been found, but none have been elaborated into a detailed theory of the neuropsychology of intelligence.
The chapter concludes with several questions for future research in the area of intelligence. Biological approaches to intelligence. story in the reductionist approach to human intelligence.
On a much. perhaps the most active fr ontier today in the study of intelligence. Biological intelligence engages all of immunity's remarkable tasks. One of the future tasks of biological intelligence is to teach the body to correctly recognize cancers that have been missed.
What is intelligence. How did it begin and evolve to human intelligence. Does a high level of biological intelligence require a complex brain. Can man-made machines be truly intelligent. Is AI fundamentally different from human intelligence.
In Birth of Intelligence, distinguished neuroscientist Daeyeol Lee tackles these pressing fundamental issues. The chapter also examines some of the alternative and auxiliary approaches to the study of intelligence, such as the biological approach and cybernetic approach.
The biological approach has never really been gathered together under the heading of a single discipline. When asked whether he would discuss man in the Origins of the Species, Darwin replied, ‘I think I shall avoid the subject, as so surrounded with prejudices, though I fully admit it is the highest and most interesting problem for the naturalist’.Galton on the other hand replied to the same question, ‘I shall treat man and see what the theory of heredity of variations and the principles of.
This book introduces new and provocative neuroscience research that advances our understanding of intelligence and the brain. 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/5(22).
Human intelligence, mental quality that consists of the abilities to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, understand and handle abstract concepts, and use knowledge to manipulate one’s environment. Much of the excitement among investigators in the field of intelligence derives from their attempts to determine exactly what intelligence is.
Although the intelligence quotient (IQ) is the most popular intelligence test in the world, little is known about the underlying biological mechanisms that lead to the differences in human. To improve our understanding of cognitive processes and identify potential biomarkers, we conducted a comprehensive investigation of IQ-related genes.
Understanding and predicting human behaviour has been of particular interest to researchers for many years. Moreover, the assumption that knowledge of attitudes will help in the task of predicting. Human intelligence - Human intelligence - Cognitive theories: During the era dominated by psychometric theories, the study of intelligence was influenced most by those investigating individual differences in people’s test scores.
In an address to the American Psychological Association inthe American researcher Lee Cronbach, a leader in the testing field, decried the lack of common. This book provides a comprehensive, balanced, current survey of theory and research on the origins and transmission of human intelligence.
The book is unique in the diversity of viewpoints it presents, and its inclusion of the very most recent theories and s: 1. The book is a take on understanding (human-like) intelligence. The author introduces memory prediction framework to explain the kind of intelligence humans possess.
He defines intelligence as the ability to predict. This ability (prediction) can then take different shapes, like /5().Biological Influences Biological influences include everything from nutrition to stress, and begin to shape intelligence from prenatal stages onward.The nature of 'g' or general intelligence is discussed in detail, as is the issue of the heritability of intelligence.
The alternative approaches that emphasise domain-specific intelligences are explored, alongside wide-ranging discussions on a broad range of issues such as the biological basis for intelligence, animal models and changes in IQ.
