  • Researchers analyze connection between brain health and IQ
    which were published in Psychological Science showed that individuals who had wider retinal venules had lower IQs and also showed evidence of general cognitive issues like lower scores on various neuropsychological functioning exams Interestingly people who had wider venules at age 38 also had lower IQs when they were children This suggests that changes in vascular health and cognitive function could start even before the onset of dementia and other forms of cognitive decline In the future this could help researchers better understand how to treat and prevent dementia which is a significant health concern in the U S Today more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer s one of the most common forms of dementia making it a leading cause of death in the U S the Alzheimer s Association states RELATED ARTICLES Why that social media IQ test is inaccurate Genetic IQ tests to begin in China Improving critical thinking skills More NEWS CATEGORIES IQ Test Information Kids IQ Test Information Personality Test Information Career Test Information Other Test Information Free IQ Test What s your IQ Find out with our fun PhD Certified interactive test Where will Your IQ Score Emerge on the Chart Below 80 90
