Neurobiological Correlates

  • Joseph R. Carvalko Jr.


Biological mechanisms that account for variations in individual g-factors range from brain size and density to the synchrony of neural activity and overall connectivity within the cortex. Researchers uncovered evidence for the molecular genetic background of music related phenotypes such as composing, improvising and arranging music. Creativity in music was found to co-segregate with a duplication covering glucose mutarotase gene at chromosome band 2p22, which influences serotonin release in the brain and membrane trafficking of the human serotonin transporter.
