"On average, people with messy handwriting are more intelligent, for the following reasons:
1) Messy handwriting is intended mainly for the writer to read and not others, this indicates the writer is introverted, and therefore more inward thinking and intelligent.
2) When the writer reads the messy writing. He is reading fragments from the page and filling in the illegible gaps with his memory and predictions. As writing and reading is a common occurrence, messy writing would increase intelligence.
3) Messy writing may be the produce of fast handwriting, which would be needed of fast-thinkers."

>Cognitive neuroscientist Sid Kouider of CNRS, the French national research agency, in Paris watched for swings in electrical activity, called event-related potentials (ERPs), in the babies’ brains. In babies who were at least 1 year old, Kouider saw an ERP pattern similar to an adult’s, but it was about three times slower. The team was surprised to see that the 5-month-olds also showed a late slow wave, although it was weaker and more drawn out than in the older babies. Kouider speculates that the late slow wave may be present in babies as young as 2 months. This late slow wave may indicate conscious thought, Kouider and colleagues report online today in Science. The wave, feedback from the prefrontal cortex, suggests that the image is stored briefly in the baby’s temporary “working memory.” And consciousness, Kouider says, is composed of working memory.
Why aren't we doing more studies on infants to understand consciousness?

What is the best major for an individual looking to help advance the field of biomechatronics? Like, cybernetics, brain-machine interface, and intelligence amplification?
I want to put computers in peoples brains pls help.
Or, I guess more accurately, I want to design the machines, I guess. And probe the boundaries of what it means to be human. So Engineering? Biotech? Computer Science? Neuroscience?
