Scientists from the Netherlands have established a penchant for solving mathematical problems is formed at another child in the fetal stage of development. Using a special analysis on the 12th week of pregnancy, you can determine the ability of the unborn child and to determine its future course of development.
In the experiment, the scientists observed for five years for pregnant women, and after the birth of their children.
The children grew up born mathematicians, if the concentration of thyroxine, a thyroid hormone, in the body of the mother was quite high. Data were recorded at the age of five.
In addition to the mathematical abilities, scientists tried to find the relationship between thyroxine and desire to learn languages. However, the relationship was not found.
Thyroxine is one of the main hormones responsible for the mental development of the child. It forms the intellect. The lack of thyroxine leads to imbecility.
