Some research findings have confirmed that a mother’s genetic determine how clever her children are.
According to the research, women are more likely to transfer intelligent genes to their children because they are carried on the X chromosome and women have two of these while men only have one.
In addition to this, scientist now believe genes for advanced cognitive functions which are inherited from the father may be automatically deactivated. A category of gene known as “conditioned genes” are thought to work only if they come from the mother in some cases and the father in other cases.
Intelligence is believed to be among the conditioned genes that have to come from the mother.
Do the men agree?
