Why a few are intelligent than other people

The researchers have disclosed a new research which illustrates that the more variable a brain is and the more its diverse areas regularly attach with each other, the higher a person’s intelligence quotient (IQ) and creativity are.

Your IQ is usually measured by an ability to understand information and give solutions, no matter the condition. In mathematics and basic sciences, IQ is hugely significant, as it shows your ability to remember concepts and repeat their findings on same problems. This information alone shows intelligence’s connection to creativity, one that is very important for not just understanding the creative thinking, but for perking it up.

In a proposal to unchain the secrets of the human brain, a group of researchers directed by the University of Warwick enumerated the brain’s vibrant workings, recognizing how diverse areas of the brain interact with each other at diverse times to find out how the brain functions.

Much perfect understanding of human aptitude could direct to future expansions in artificial intelligence (AI).

Jianfeng Feng, who is professor of the department of computer science studies at Warwick, elaborated that “Advanced brain imaging techniques in our study has helped us gain insights and inform developments in artificial intelligence as well as help establish the basis for understanding and diagnosis of debilitating human mental disorders such as schizophrenia and depression,”

Employing resting-state MRI study on thousands of individual’s brains across the globe, the researchers discovered that the parts of the brain which are connected with learning and development illustrate elevated levels of inconsistency, stating that they alter their neural bonds with other areas of the brain much often, over a matter of minutes or seconds.

On the further side, areas of the brain which aren’t related to intelligence — the visual, auditory and sensory-motor parts — illustrate little inconsistency and flexibility.

At present, AI systems do not have the inconsistency and adaptability that is imperative, as proved by Professor Jianfeng’s study, to the human brain for development and learning.

This detection of vibrant works inside the brain could be useful to the building of higher artificial neural networks for computers, with the aptitude to learn, develop and adapt.

This research study can, in addition, have connotations for a deeper understanding of one more mainly misunderstood field: mental health.

Changed patterns of inconsistency were pragmatic in the brain’s defaulting network with schizophrenia, autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) patients.

Recognizing the main reason of mental health faults carries scientists exponentially nearer to treating and averting them in the future. The research paper is approaching in the journal Brain.
