> this area. He's not plugged in to the electronic global brain, but
> agreed that I could paraphrase what he said. I can't answer to any of

> Intelligent people (~top 2 or 5 % IQ I think) have:
> - same or slightly more left handedness
> - increased mixed handedness (not sure which hand to use)
> - Myopia pre age 10 at 5x general population,

> - Allergies at 3x gen pop.
> - Higher uric acid levels.
> Intelligence correlation to brain size is .40 or .45.
> It's neo-cortex size that seems to be important here.
> Women have the same IQ as men, Storfer says, except for 3D spacial
> Publications by Miles Storfer:
> "Intelligence and Giftedness..." Jossey Bass pub 1990
> "Perceptual Motor Skills" (perhaps article in IJN?) ~1996
> and a monograph on this subject is expected in the International
> Journal of Neuroscience in the next few months.
