The Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory (P-FIT) of intelligence: Converging neuroimaging evidence
It is proposed that the P-FIT provides a parsimonious account for many of the empirical observations, to date, which relate individual differences in intelligence test scores to variations in brain structure and function.

The findings support the view derived from both animal and human investigations that the AC is selectively involved with the formation of enhanced long-term memory associated with emotionally arousing events.

Cortical glucose metabolic rate correlates of abstract reasoning and attention studied with positron emission tomography
Toward a Unified Theory of Narcosis: Brain Imaging Evidence for a Thalamocortical Switch as the Neurophysiologic Basis of Anesthetic-Induced Unconsciousness
A model of anesthetic-induced unconsciousness is introduced to explain how the plethora of effects anesthetics have on cellular functioning ultimately all converge on a single neuroanatomic/neurophysiologic system, thus providing for a unitary physiologic theory of narcosis related to consciousness.

Results demonstrate a clear gender-related lateralization of amygdala involvement in emotionally influenced memory, and indicate that theories of the neurobiology of emotionally influencing memory must begin to account for the influence of gender.
The neuroanatomy of general intelligence: sex matters
Neuroanatomy of creativity
This is the first study to link cortical thickness measures to psychometric measures of creativity, and suggests that cognitive control of information flow among brain areas may be critical to understanding creative cognition.
