Selecting between intelligent options

  • Roi Cohen Kadosh (a1), Vincent Walsh (a1) and Avishai Henik (a2)

In this commentary we make two rejoinders to Jung & Haier (J&H). First, we highlight the response selection component in tasks as a confounding variable that may explain the parieto-frontal involvement in studies of human intelligence. Second, we suggest that efficient response selection may be an integral part of the definition of intelligence.
