The results are curious, apparently, men behave differently with their daughters and sons. While being more emotionally open and responsive to girls, fathers usually are reserved around sons. The experiment involved brain scanning of fathers who watched the photos of facial expressions of their kids. Watching their girls’ happy or sad expressions had more intense brain reaction.
