ABSTRACT
The article discusses studies on the effects of nature or nurture on children's cognitive development. Scientific research, including the sequencing of human genome, provide an understanding of the interactions between genes and the environment. Researchers in Canada illustrated the interaction between nature and nurture by exploring the effects of mother-baby interaction on gene expression in a rat population. Present day research attribute the self-discipline and hard work among high academic achievers to their inherent abilities and their environment.
