May 23, 2013 — A brief visual task can predict IQ, according to a new study. This surprisingly simple exercise measures the brain's unconscious ability to filter out visual movement. The study shows that individuals whose brains are better at automatically suppressing background motion perform better on standard measures of intelligence. The test is the first purely sensory assessment to be strongly correlated with IQ and may provide a non-verbal and culturally unbiased tool for scientists seeking to understand neural processes associated with general intelligence.
Alternatives: An alternative to finding electrodes and doing all the amplification DIY-style, it's now possible to purchase a single channel off-the-shelf headset from Neurosky which sends the raw EEG via bluetooth.
You are your brain. This simple fact is at the heart of any lawsuit involving brain injuries.

Here are some interesting statistics* about neurons in humans and other animals (remember that these are averages because there is a lot of variability in the nervous system!)

Neurons come in many sizes. For example, a single sensory neuron from your fingertip has an axon that extends the length of your arm, while neurons within the brain may extend only a few millimeters. They also have different shapes depending on their functions. Motor neurons that control muscle contractions have a cell body on one end, a long axon in the middle and dendrites on the other end. Sensory neurons have dendrites on both ends, connected by a long axon with a cell body in the middle. Interneurons , or associative neurons, carry information between motor and sensory neurons.
