Written by well-known experts, this book is about psychological research on intelligence and the various factors that influence its development. The volume summarizes and synthesizes the past 30 years of literature on intelligence. Each author takes a different experimental approach to the subject, spanning research on neuroscience and perceptual speed to research on problem solving and metacognition.
