Detailed Map of Brain Regions Linked With Emotional Intelligence Developed
Researchers in the United States have studied a group of Vietnam veterans who suffered combat related brain injuries and have developed the first detailed map of brain regions that help contribute to emotional intelligence.
Notes that researchers found major correlations between general and emotional intelligences in terms of behavioral patterns and brain structure.
Participants who scored higher on the general intelligence tests also demonstrated higher achievement on the assessment of emotional intelligence. Further, similar brain areas were important to both, areas in the frontal and parietal cortices, in the front and top, back of the brain.
The testing was complex and even involved 3D modelings of the patients' brains. The significant findings shed light on the "interdependence of general and emotional intelligence in the healthy mind."
Although this correlation was intuited by some, most scholars found the powerful link surprising.
