Resting state connections in the brain could predict intelligence
Your resting-state brain activity might indicate how intelligent you are.

Researchers at the UNSW tested elderly healthy adults in functional MRI machines both while performing specific activities and also at rest. They discovered that human brain is some-what already predisposed to performing better or worse in certain tasks. The level of functional connectivity at rest was associated with how well these adults performed on language recall and executive function tests. While positive functional connectivity correlates were located in the temporal and frontal cortex, negative correlates were located in the anterior cingulate cortex. This shows that cognitive performances can be predicted by inter-individual differences in functional connectivity at rest.
