Foods rich in monounsaturated fatty acids like olive oil, nuts, avocados, increase intelligence, reports “Orthodox”.
Studies have shown that intelligence was associated with the dorsal attention system, which is important for performing tasks that require attention, and everyday Affairs.
In particular, the General level of intelligence was determined by how effectively the described network was functionally organized. And monounsaturated fatty acids played here not last role.

These acids were in close contact with the dorsal attention system and how the system works optimally, says Aaron Barbie of the University of Illinois.
Studies of the diet of the volunteers and their level of intelligence showed that people with high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids in the blood had a more ordered structure in the dorsal attention system. So, monounsaturated fatty acids can exert a real influence on cognitive abilities, says Barbie.
