Researchers ID Genes Linked to Brain Size, IntelligenceIn the world’s largest brain study to date, a team of more than 200 scientists from 100 institutions worldwide collaborated to map the human genes that boost or sabotage the brain’s resistance to a variety of mental illnesses and Alzheimer’s disease. Published in the advance online edition of Nature Genetics, the study also uncovers new genes that may explain individual differences in brain size and intelligence.“We searched for two things in this study,” says senior author Paul Thompson, professor of neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a member of the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging. “We hunted for genes that increase your risk for a single disease that your children can inherit. We also looked for factors that cause tissue atrophy and reduce brain size, which is a biological marker for hereditary disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.”Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news-Researchers-ID-Genes-Linked-to-Brain-Size-Intellegence-041612.aspx

    If only I had gotten a better look at Knightmare’s brain. Another time perhaps.
