The purpose of this study was the determination of the relationship between the dimensional complexity of the electroencephalogam (EEG) and the level of intelligence in humans. In two experiments 34 male subjects were divided into two groups, with high and low levels of intelligence (as measured by the intelligence quotient (IQ)). During a resting phase and various mental imagery conditions the EEG was recorded from several scalp sites. Nonlinear analysis, based on the theory of deterministic… CONTINUE READING
