What Causes "Wisdom"?

From the USA Today:

Dilip Jeste, professor of psychiatry and neuroscience and chief of geriatric psychiatry at UC San Diego[,] [says] ["]our research suggests that there may be a basis in neurobiology for wisdom's most universal traits."
[Jeste et al.] conclude that several common brain regions appear to be involved in wisdom, and suggest that the neurobiology of wisdom involves a balance between more primitive brain regions (the limbic system) and the newest ones (pre-frontal cortex.).

Wow! And here I thought that wisdom came from listening to Rush Limbaugh (joke)
