is the theory that some behaviours and genetics are hereditary whereas some arise after the full maturation of organs in the body, such as the neural system.

MATURATION HYPOTHESIS: "Some characteristics arise due to our genes, where's some characteristics, according to the maturation hypothesis arise due to the maturation of certain body organs."
