Thank you for being so very literal to my super cereal outburst. I suppose it's my bad, this is the science section on closer inspection.

Haha. I'm so very literal rather frequently, regardless of context.

Re: ADHD and General Intelligence - the Biological Perspective

Next time I make the claim my brain is smaller I'll make sure to get the study that was conducted solely on me. Or maybe I'll just do a home job and post pics. On 2nd thought, I don't know how I'd make that work either. The fact it required an afterthought may be evidence enough my brain is smaller.

I wonder what could be used for an improvised home EEG.

Re: ADHD and General Intelligence - the Biological Perspective

I was thinking along cruder lines, like a butcher's knife, chopping board, and scale.

Re: ADHD and General Intelligence - the Biological Perspective

Smaller brain is not automatically correlated with lower intelligence. Individual brain structures perform pretty specific functions, so differences in overall size mean a lot less than differences in size of particular structures. On top of that, some size differences that don't correlate with differences in connectivity will be less relevant than size differences that affect or are affected by functional connections.

It just ain't that easy!
