Intelligence

In the late 1800’s, a number of scientists conducted studies to determine the correlation between brain size and intelligence. These researchers determined that males have larger brains compared to females, even when making adjustments for body size. Thus, males were more intelligent. Based on the information that you have read in this course, do you believe that people with larger brains are more intelligent? Why or why not? If not, what other factors could explain differences in intelligence between people. Be sure to integrate information from your textbook in your response.
