Genes Influence Human Intelligence

Human Intelligence 
 Scientists discovered that genetic plays a major role in intellectual behavior. Recent studies, show that 40% of human intelligence is inherited in our genes. The two networks known as M1 and M3 gene are essential for understanding the development of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia. " We know that genetics play a major role in intelligence but until now haven't known which genes are relevant." Hence, this could be a possibility for scientists to manipulate a different set of genes that are relevant to human intelligence. Which could be a possibility for doctors and patients to find better treatments for neurological disorders.  

I think this article was interesting because researchers have the potential of understanding how mutated genes are associated with neurological disorders. It will be a new insight for scientists to gain knowledge about cognitive disabilities and provide early prognosis for individuals with learning disabilities. This might help understand how autism spectrum disorder can be a possible cause of mutation in the genes.
