I found here a brief intro to genetic factor of human intelligence: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1036362

Also there is known that gyrus hipocampii is basis of STM which have role in general factor. What I cant find is how biology of brain is connected to IQ measurement.

What is neurobiology, physiology and anatomy basis of human intelligence in general?

EDIT: is there any revue article which sumarize neurobiology, physiology and anatomy basis of human intelligence in general?

ie. this book in amazon shows genetic basis of personality. i am looking for similar book or article which will sumarize physiology and anatomy basis of inteligence: http://www.amazon.com/Behavior-Genetics-Principles-Perspectives-Psychopathology/dp/1591470838

Connected to IQ measurement, or connected to IQ? Connected to IQ: processing speed, neural networking density etc. relate to what the brain can or cannot do. How should the brain not be related to intelligence? The general factor is the brain's basic potency. –  what Sep 8 '13 at 18:00
    
i mean absolutely what you mentioned. biology to IQ to IQ measurement. I know that there are several concepts IQ from Spearman to Guilford to Gardner, but I am interested if there are any research which will connect spearman works to biology. if there are some other research related to guilford or gardner i will also like to read that. –  ICanFeelIt Sep 8 '13 at 19:47
    
also i think there are some reserch where IQ was measured directly by EEG, not by paper and pencil –  ICanFeelIt Sep 8 '13 at 19:51

imo, intelligence is an ill-defined term. I think it would take volumes to answer the question as is. Narrowing it down might be productive. –  Keegan Keplinger Sep 9 '13 at 3:14
    
Intelligence is ill-defined in the sense you are using it in, and the genetic correlate of general fitness or mutation load. –  Artem Kaznatcheev Sep 9 '13 at 16:26
