In a symposium in university of Vermont (focusing on risks and resilience factors in child development), I heard a moving story about a brain-damaged fetus being born to an extraordinary mother whose single-minded focus on her baby's cognitive development correlated with the child growing up to be a genius.
I invited my friend and colleague Dr Sherif Karama (assistant professor of Clinical Psychiatry at McGill University) to join us in our group and talk to us about this particular story and his research about the link between brain plasticity, genes and intelligence.
I apologize for this short notice, but this is a unique and an excellent opportunity to ask an expert all you wanted to know about IQ and the brain but were scared to ask.
