Abstract:

Can modern genetics, psychology, and neuroscience actually identify the qualities that make up human creativity and brilliance? This program follows innovative research which may help determine what makes a person a genius-if such a label even makes sense. Dr. Manuel Casanova of the University of Louisville has detected differences in brain structure that may account for extreme intelligence. Dr. Justin Halberda of Johns Hopkins University administers a color-coded computer test that measures latent mathematical ability in children. And Dr. Elly Nedivi of MIT has, through studying Pavlovian responses in mice, found a gene associated with learning. Artists and savants are also featured.
