It should be noted that scientists have previously reported similar patterns, and even came up to her name - "restless syndrome, Phil. They identified three main effects of maternal smoking on the child's behavior: it becomes hyperactive, aggressive, inattentive and more prone to lie than his peers. However, to establish how the smoking pregnant women affects the behavior of the child after birth, then install failed.

Now scientists have found the explanation for this fact. In their view, maternal smoking affects the secretion of the notorious dopamine, which is responsible for the development of the brain in the fetus. A couple of cigarettes smoked during pregnancy, of course, will not have such an influence on the fetus. But here's the regular smoking, of course, greatly increase the chance of women smokers have a child, the upbringing of which then have to tinker.
