Interesting, thanks for sharing.

 

 

"A possible mechanism that might account for the association observed between NVP and improved performance in the offspring is the variation in the maternal hormonal milieu during pregnancy, especially maternal levels of estradiol and prolactin that might positively affect neurogenesis in the fetal brain; offspring exposed to higher levels could develop enhanced neural capabilities."

Well, I threw up a lot with my first, and she's extremely intelligent/gifted verbally... not as much as with my second, and while she's very smart she's not precocious like my oldest was/is. With this one I'm only having awful dry retching/low-level nausea, so not sure what that foretells about this child's intelligence. ;)
