If you've ever wondered whether or not gender has anything to do with how intelligent a person is, a new video answers some of these questions.
YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE looked into the age-old question by citing multiple studies that have been done comparing male and female brains. Instead of pummeling viewers with facts and figures, the duo behind the channel brings a visual perspective to the work by sketching out scenes of each piece of research to make information easy to digest and accessible.
One of the common misconceptions is that a big brain equals superior intelligence, based on the fact that a man's brain is typically 8 to 13 percent larger than a woman's brain. However, size doesn't matter except in the case that the body size determines how big someone's brain is.
Cultural differences and stereotypes are addressed throughout the video as the channel takes a look at studies that focused on young boys and girls.
While people expect males to enjoy video games and that females love scrapbooking, researchers found quite the opposite. Neither males nor females exhibited gender-specific behaviors when it came to each activity. And when they took a look at who's more likely to dominate school subjects throughout the United States and the world, the answer might surprise you.
