Children with big heads have a better chance of a successful future

According to a study, babies with large heads are more likely to be intelligent and lead successful lives.

huge head circumferences and huge brain volumes have been strongly associated with higher intellect, according to research conducted by UK Biobank.

The foundation is tracking half a million British people to find the relationship between their genes, physical and mental health, and life trajectory.

The most recent data is the first to be released from the investigation that seeks to dissect the connection between DNA and brain function.

‘Highly significant associations were observed between the cognitive test scores in the UK Biobank sample and many polygenic profile scores, including… intracranial volume, infant head circumference, and childhood cognitive ability,’ the researchers reported in a paper published in the Molecular Psychiatry journal.

The research’s principal investigator, Professor Ian Deary of Edinburgh University, stated that gene variations were also highly correlated with IQ, as reported by The Times.

Experts assert that the new data is so precise that it may even use DNA to forecast a baby’s likelihood of attending college.
