Page 316. Flynn effect: during 30 years, IQ tests of various aged children showed a gradual growth in intellect capacity. On average, the IQ results gained 21 points more in comparison with first years of the research.
Positive results in child IQ evaluation after adoption.
Research of video games influence on child education showed no positive effect. Amongst four groups of kids, only the one, the Paper-Pencil group, where children were allowed to play games on paper, showed positive growth in results on post-test.

Page 310. Intellectual inheritance and environment. Determination and behaviorism. The intellectual evaluations of monozygotic twins, in comparison with other blood related subjects. The correlation of different intellectual factors are much higher in monozygotic twins than those with other blood related siblings. Even if raised in different families.
The importance of rich in proteins nutrition for pregnant mothers or for children during their physical development stages. The intellectual factors in children are much lower in poor neighborhoods and countries, due to malnutrition AND lack of sensori-motor stimulation. For ex: children with long hospital stay are prone to apathy due to lack of visual stimuli (white walls, linen, curtains...).

Also, lesions in frontal cortex prevent from analysing visual information and planning our actions.
