04 May 20. EIF RIE on BBC tonight

The Edinburgh Imaging Facility RIE will appear tonight at 9pm on BBC Two's Horizon episode: 'The Great British Intelligence Test'.

A few weeks ago, a BBC film crew visited the Edinburgh Imaging Facility RIE as part of the BBC Horizon & Imperial College London's project: 'The Great British Intelligence Test'.

During this visit our radiographers carried out an MR scan at the EIF RIE, on University Challenge's Bobby Seagull, as a measure of intelligence.  The radiography team used the Lothian Birth Cohort (LBC) DTI imaging protocol.

Dr Simon Cox from the School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences, spoke with Dr Hannah Fry & Bobby Seagull about brain structural metrics, & whether in general these are linked with intelligence differences. 

Tonight, the segment about research at EIF RIE airs on BBC Two at 9pm. Be sure to watch!
