In addition to the psychological component, there is a scientific explanation for the emotional connection between mother and daughter, which is related to the limbic system and which causes the two similar mechanisms to respond to certain stimuli or situations.

The connection between mother and daughter goes beyond education, affection and the context in which the two live or interact.

A study published in the journal Science Daily revealed that the brain structure that governs emotions can be passed from mother to daughter.

Neurologists, psychiatrists and psychologists have a basis for justifying the predisposition to develop certain character traits or to install depression, for example.

The study conducted at the University of California does not suggest that if your mother suffers from anxiety attacks, you will face the same problem.

There is simply a greater risk and possibility.

In addition, a woman’s ability to cope with adverse circumstances, to be strong, is also transmitted through this feminine connection.
