Clever People Have Bigger, Better Brain Cells

Sunday, May 6, 2018 - 11:50

Scientists of the Free University Amsterdam have discovered that intelligent people have bigger (and better) brain cells than others.

The finding could lead to new ways to enhance human intelligence, New Scientist reports.

Clever people’s brain cells are also ‘better connected’ to neighboring cells, the study found.

Natalia Goriounova of the Free University Amsterdam, gave an IQ test to 35 people who were due to undergo brain surgery.

The team found that people of higher intelligence tend to have larger, better connected neurons.

Christof Koch at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle told New Scientist: ‘We’ve known there is some link between brain size and intelligence. The team confirm this and take it down to individual neurons.
