ABSTRACT: A statistical mechanics of neuronal interactions (SMNI)
is explored as providing some substance to a physiological basis
of the g factor. Some specific elements of SMNI, previously
used to develop a theory of short-term memory (STM) and a model
of electroencephalography (EEG) are key to providing this basis.
Specifically, Hick's Law, an observed linear relationship between
reaction time (RT) and the information storage of STM, in turn
correlated to a RT-g relationship, is derived.
