While parents on both sides have joked since the dawn of time about where a child gets their ‘smarts’ from, it is a case closed upon further review of some newer and older studies.It’s important to note that for a long time, researchers did believe that intelligence genes came from both sides.

But, since then, various studies have come out that have shown that children are far more likely to inherit intelligence from their mothers because intelligence genes were found in chromosome x.In one of these studies, which was carried out in 1984 at the University of Cambridge, researchers used created rat embryos to observe.
