'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 captures the conceptualization and measurement of intelligence, which is one of psychology’s greatest achievements. It shows how the advent of modern imaging techniques and large-scale data sets have added to our knowledge about brain-environmental-ability relationships and highlights the controversy in this rapidly expanding field.'
Diane F. Halpern - Professor of Psychology, Emerita, Claremont McKenna College
'This handbook assembles an impressive group of pioneers and outstanding young researchers at the forefront of intelligence neuroscience. The chapters summarize the state of the field today and foreshadows what it might become.'
Lars Penke - Professor of Psychology, Georg August University of Göttingen
'This book is a tribute to its topic. It is intelligently assembled, spanning all aspects of intelligence research and its applications. The authors are distinguished experts, masterfully summarising the latest knowledge about intelligence obtained with cutting-edge methodology. If one wants to learn about intelligence, this is the book to read.'
Yulia Kovas - Professor of Genetics and Psychology, Goldsmiths University of London
