A roadmap for integrating the brain with mind maps

  • Andreas Demetriou (a1) (a2) and Antigoni Mouyi (a1)

This commentary compares the P-FIT model with psychometric and developmental models of intelligence and shows that there are isomorphisms and divergences between them. All three models involve some common dimensions, but the P-FIT model lacks many of the dimensions of the other models. Then we point to research that can lead to the integration of brain models with cognitive-developmental models.
