Evolved Intelligence?

Can intelligence be enhanced genetically? Has it been enhanced in certain existing groups of people? Slashdot linked up this intriguing article about a new report that hypothesises a firm "yes" to both questions. The population under consideration? Ashkenazi Jews.

An interesting proposal, but one that doesn't seem to have received much in the way of testing so far.
