Best evidence yet that a single gene can affect IQ PDF Versão para impressão Enviar por E-mail

A massive genetics study relying on MRI brain scans and DNA samples from over 20,000 people has revealed what is claimed as the biggest effect yet of a single gene on intelligence - although the effect is small. There is little dispute that genetics accounts for a large amount of the variation in people's intelligence, but studies have consistently failed to find any single genes that have a substantial impact. Instead, researchers typically find that hundreds of genes contribute.

The two sides of this argument are the nativists, whom I will sometimes call geneticists, hereditarians, or naturians; and the empiricists, whom I will sometimes call environmentalists or nurturists.

The 4 Biggest Myths About the Human Brain PDF Versão para impressão Enviar por E-mail

What is it that makes the human brain so special? Sure it's big - but it's far from the biggest brain around. You've heard that your brain contains 100 billion neurons - but where does that number really come from, and how does it stack up against other species?

You may think you know the answers to these questions, but there's a good chance you've been misinformed about what makes our brain more special than any other brains on Earth. Here are four of neuroscience's biggest brain myths, and why they're all wet.
