Intelligence, Learning, and Plasticity

Barbey to lead new initiative at the Beckman Institute on “Intelligence, Learning, and Plasticity”

Rather than engaging a single brain structure or operating at a fixed level of performance throughout adulthood, emerging evidence indicates that intelligence is mediated by a distributed neural system whose functions can be significantly enhanced by specific types of intervention.
