expire: Emeritus Professor Jim Flynn: Are we getting smarter? Rising IQ in the twenty-first century

Year over year people fare better on standardised tests, a global phenomenon called the Flynn Effect. Jim Flynn believes that environmental factors play a greater role in intelligence than genetics does. His latest findings, discussed in his 2012 book Are We Getting Smarter?, also suggest that women are not only as intelligent as men but superior when it comes to executive function.

In this seminar, Jim will give a preview of his 18-minute talk that he will present at the prestigious TED2013 conference.
