Going to law school can be a life-changing experience. A new research paper says just studying for the law school entrance exam alters your brain structure—and could make you smarter.
Intensive study for the Law School Admission Test reinforces circuits in the brain and can bridge the gap between the right and left hemispheres, according to neuroscientists at the University of California, Berkeley, in findings reported last week in the online journal Frontiers in Neuroanatomy.
Those changes can improve reasoning ability and may increase a person's IQ score, the researchers said.
