Scientists from the Institute of psychiatry at the University of London kings College tried to detect genetic combination, responsible for the genius of the man. It turned out that genes exert their influence on the processes of communication and information processing.
BBC reports, a role in genius is the gene, known to scientists as NPTN. This structure leads to an increase in brain activity. Gene increases the density of grey matter. It is proved that the volume of gray matter and its activity determines human mental abilities.
Research group leader Sylvanas Desiver believes that the preliminary study objectives were achieved. Scientists have found the cause of the differences between intellectual potentials of different people. Finally, conclusions were drawn regarding the processes associated with the exchange of information in the nervous tissue. Gene NPTN has some influence on this process.
