Intelligence 'networks' discovered in brain for the first time

Intelligence 'networks' discovered in brain for the first time | Genetic engineering and Human genetics, background reading and resources for IB | Scoop.it
Scientists from Imperial College London have identified for the first time two clusters of genes linked to human intelligence. Crucially, the scientists have discovered that these two networks -- which each contain hundreds of genes -- are likely to be under the control of master regulator switches. The researchers are now keen to identify these switches and explore whether it might be feasible to manipulate them.
