Scientists measuring blood flow to regions of the brain have found that
one particular area (the frontal lateral cortex) was stimulated when
performing complex tasks. Even tasks that required a wide range of
cognitive functions did not stimulate numerous regions of the brain, as
some scientists predicted. This finding gives credence to the highly
controversial idea of a "g" factor (generalized intelligence), as
advocated in The Bell Curve.
