The human brain has been studied extensively for over centuries to ascertain the source of functioning of the body besides understanding psychological aspects of the mind. Even though technological applications have enabled analysing brain functions to a certain extent, the mechanisms are unclear and research continues to reach definitions where more hypotheses form. This paper attempts to define intelligence as a basic reflex mechanism to explain the changes that we experience while we orient ourselves to our surroundings. The components that are being explored here are the orienting reflex, desynchronisation of the alpha rhythm and correlating these to establish a change in intelligence.

Keywords: Intelligence, Orienting Reflex, Desynchronisation, Alpha Rhythm, Habituation
