I do not see it posted in the newsgroup, but I received an email
"correction" saying that she meant to specify "high intelligence". 
Does not really refine the question in any helpful way.

Perhaps she is asking if there is some chemical which is found in
higher amounts in more intelligent people?  (The short answer is: no)
