During the growth of embryo cells containing the paternal genes, ensuring its survival. They are concentrated in the limbic system of the brain that control aggression, hunger and sex.

Whatever it was, we should not forget that the mental abilities are not 100% determined by genetics. The results of other studies show that mothers play an important role in the intellectual development of children through physical and emotional contact. That is, the relationship between child and mother in many ways affect his intelligence.

The authors of the study say that children who have developed strong trusting relationships with their mothers, show greater persistence in goals and less likely to show frustration when solving complex tasks.
