"Heritability of IQ" and "Intelligence Quotient"[edit]

Please forgive me and correct me if this is inappropriate. The Heritability of IQ and Intelligence Quotient pages are significantly related to neuroscience. The G factor (psychometrics) article is within the scope of Wikiproject Neuroscience, it's my opinion that Intelligence Quotient and related articles are also within the scope of this Wikiproject. I just wanted to get the opinions of other members of the community on this. Thank you for your time, and again, please forgive me if this is inappropriate.

Sure. There are already a number of articles on the general topic of brain-and-intelligence listed for the project, but feel free to add those and any others that seem appropriate. Looie496 (talk) 18:41, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that would be fine with me, too. Obviously, there is overlap with psychology, which seems to me to be the primary topic area in these examples, rather than neuroscience. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:53, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Neural population[edit]

I've created links from some articles to Neural population, a currently non-existent article. Can or should that article be created? 2601:445:4001:4514:7916:685B:4868:A7B1 (talk) 19:05, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

It depends on the kind of "population" that is being discussed, and I think that, strictly speaking, it would probably be a neuronal population, rather than neural. We already have Nucleus (neuroanatomy) for populations of neurons defined anatomically, and Biological neural network for populations defined functionally. I'm not clear on what further we would really need. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:16, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
Probably this should redirect to neural ensemble (or vice versa). Looie496 (talk) 19:35, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
I was trying and trying to think of a page that I was overlooking, and of course that's it. Better than a network. There may be a few contexts where nucleus is the intended meaning, but I agree that it will usually be an ensemble. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:40, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
OK, I'd be happy to make the page blue. I see three options for doing it, however. One would be simply to make Neural population a redirect to Neural ensemble. The second would be to make it a DAB page, listing ensemble, nucleus, and network. The third would be to make it a redirect, but also to put a hatnote on ensemble, saying Neural population redirects here. For the anatomical cell group, see Nucleus (neuroanatomy). I prefer the second or the third, and I'm leaning toward the third. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:44, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
The third solution seems preferable to me. Looie496 (talk) 12:47, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Good, me too. I'll implement it shortly. Thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 17:36, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Someone who must have been watching here beat me to the redirect. I made the hatnote. --Tryptofish (talk) 18:55, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
