        So certain genetic mutations occurred which lead to a comparative advantage being developed, thus leading to higher reproductive rates of offspring who also hold the gene?



        That's pretty much the basis for genetic evolution. Good article though



        EDIT: I think it's interesting that higher intelligence is linked with higher rates of mental illness. More sophisticated brains = more **************** to go wrong?

              Yup, think of it like a Fender Princeton vs. a Mesa Roadking.

                What is interesting is not the general idea that intelligence has genetic origins, its the specifics.





                This is cool part:






                The research team studied the mental abilities of mice and humans, using comparative tasks that involved identifying objects on touch-screen computers.



                Researchers then combined results of these behavioural tests with information from the genetic codes of various species to work out when different behaviours evolved. (500MY ago)



                They found that higher mental functions in humans and mice were controlled by the same genes.



                The study also showed that when these genes were mutated or damaged, they impaired higher mental functions.



                "Our work shows that the price of higher intelligence and more complex behaviours is more mental illness," said Professor Grant.

                      More complex systems allow for more complex behaviors but also more complex flaws.

                              At some point, intelligence becomes an anti-survival trait.
