What is the source of human intelligence?

What is the source of human intelligence? Some neuroscientists believe that it is housed in a single region of our brain. Recently, however, a US researcher has come up with a different answer, suggesting that it is the brain’s agility in adjusting the connections between its different parts and between different neural network states when responding to various mental challenges which make us smart. “The entire brain – its global architecture and the interactions among lower- and higher-level mechanisms – is required for general intelligence," explains the University of Illinois’ Aron Barbey.
