Intelligence inherited from Mother

Scribe: N. Tru Bass



Religious people say man was placed on earth to procreate. Men would like to believe that the brilliance of their heir status son came directly from their bloodline and that's partially true.

According to new research, its more important to chose a smart mother for your future noble prize winning son. Many men understood that an intelligent woman trumps an intelligent man and researchers conquer. Smart children should go home this afternoon and thank their mothers for transmitting intelligence genes. Technology points to “conditioned genes”. These genes have a biochemical tag that allows origin to be traced and reveals whether or not their are active withing the descendant cells.

The new research suggests some of these conditioned genes work only if they come from the mother. If this same gene is inherited from the father, it is deactivated. Naturally, the opposite is also true and are activated only if they come form the father.

Years past we thought it was some type of 50/50 split on inherited genes and attributes. Generally speaking that is genetic truth. However, the intelligence gene is located on the X chromosome confirming its the mother that passes the smarts.

Several studies were amalgamated to create this hypothesis. One of the studies was conducted at the Columbia University and in mice when just the mothers genes were used the embryo’s heads and brains were larger and when just the father’s genes were used, the embryo’s heads were smaller and bodies were larger.     

This eliminates the idea that "the boy is smart like his daddy."
