"brain power" is a vague term used by journalists and with actually very little meaning. Intelligence is determined by many, many factors, including the health of our brain, but also our upbringing, habits, practice and exercise of our brain's work, physical and mental health, education and training, and so on. And intelligence as measured by IQ isn't always the relevant thing. Some people are "clever" but not at all wise.
