Increasing human intelligence is referred to as the Flynn effect (Flynn, 1984; 1987). It has been documented in several countries.
At the very least that can be considered evidence of environmental influence on how our brains perform. It raises many questions.
Is there a limit to how much we can increase our brain power? Will you join me in exploring how far we can take this human intellectual growth?
A recent article in the New York Times suggests that anthropologists studying human evolution across the last million or so years believe they have a handle on why and how we’ve come a long way, Baby! These anthropologists are quick to point out that their hypothesis is both based on science AND essentially impossible to prove.
The most empowering use of this perspective is to integrate it with evolving human neuroscience. Many recent studies tend to shed light on some of the ways humans could evolve intellectually. Neuroplasticity refers to changes in brain cells. Neuroplasticity CAN be influenced in positive ways!
I’m writing an eBook series with several goals. It is my mission and my passion to share evolving neuroscience that addresses the topic of enhancing human intelligence. I thrive on integrating cutting edge science with groundbreaking science that gave us a foundation to build on.
I am inviting you to use this science along with wise counsel from your healthcare provider AND your own best judgment about how to set your unique strategic plan to increase your brain power.
Don’t do as I do. Don’t do as I say. Use science and your healthcare professional to determine YOUR best way.
Stay tuned. This could be fun AND empowering. And thanks for your interest in Ideal Aging with increasing brain power.
