About 20% of people found KL-VS gene associated with increased intelligence

A team of U.S. researchers found a correlation with the KL gene variations intelligence. According to the research presence of KL-VS variation raises the level of intelligence (IQ) by 6 points, or 3 percent, people at any age.

This gene was also investigated in mice. Individuals with varying KL-VS, had a greater synaptic plasticity and more harmonious functioning of the nervous system. They quickly found a way out of the maze, and better cope with the memory test. The study of brain tissue from mice with KL-VS revealed that this gene is associated with an improvement in the NMDA transmission system.
