Brain is plastic

It was not before deepening the research in the area of neuroplasticity that the view on the contrary appeared, suggesting that our intelligence is not set in genetic stone and we can actively shape it. Genes do play a role in our innate intelligence levels, but, more influence on how bright someone is has their environment.

Active learning and some other practices (such as meditation) prove that even past early development stage an individual can massively change their brain’s biological, physical and chemical properties.

The good news is that everyone has a massive degree of control of the brain’s plasticity. The bad ones – that you can’t blame your intellectual development on genes anymore. Some studies suggest that environment and experience play a role in learning (which is prerequisite of intelligence) even more prominent role than earlier suspected.
