About the Book
‘This exciting book makes an elegant case that human intelligence is not the result of a test. It is the consequence of a brain. Drawing on state-of-the-art imaging methods, the reader is afforded a comprehensive view of the substrates enabling our most valued mental abilities.’ Scott T. Grafton, Bedrosian-Coyne Presidential Chair in Neuroscience and Director of the Brain Imaging Center, University of California at Santa Barbara

‘Our scientific understanding of human intelligence has advanced greatly over the past decade in terms of the measurement and modeling of intelligence in the human brain. This book provides an excellent analysis of current findings and theories written by top international authors. It should be recommended to students and professionals working in this field.’ Sarah E. MacPherson, Senior Lecturer in Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh

‘This handbook focuses on the brain, but also integrates genetics and cognition. Come for a comprehensive brain survey and get the bonus of a panoramic foreshadowing of integrated intelligence research and applications.’ Douglas K. Detterman, Louis D. Beaumont University Professor Emeritus of Psychological Sciences, Case Western Reserve University

This handbook introduces the reader to the thought-provoking research on the neural foundations of human intelligence. Written for undergraduate or graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and related fields, the chapters summarize research emerging from the rapidly developing neuroscience literature on human intelligence. The volume focusses on theoretical innovation and recent advances in the measurement, modelling, and characterization of the neurobiology of intelligence differences, especially from brain imaging studies. It summarizes fundamental issues in the characterization and measurement of general intelligence, and surveys multidisciplinary research consortia and large-scale data repositories for the study of general intelligence. A systematic review of neuroimaging methods for studying intelligence is provided, including structural and diffusion-weighted MRI techniques, functional MRI methods, and spectroscopic imaging of metabolic markers of intelligence.
