Dennis Garlick received his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Sydney in 2003. His Ph.D. focused on using the recent advances in the brain sciences to provide a new approach to explaining human intelligence. This approach was accepted for publication in The Psychological Review, often considered to be the most prestigious peer-reviewed psychology journal in the world. This publication led to the American Psychological Association and American Psychological Society issuing press releases publicizing this work, indicating its importance to the general public. More recently, the famous scientific journal Nature published a report confirming the validity of this approach for explaining IQ and human intelligence.
Dr. Garlick is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
