The brain of people who have achieved a lot in life, different from the brain of those who yield to them on an intellectual or communication skills.

The researchers analyzed 461 person that is to say, live snapshots wiring diagrams , which signals go from one part of the brain to another, – explains the author.
They searched ratio from 280 different qualities and indicators, including vocabulary, level of education and income.
