There have been some speculations in the past about the links relating motor development to cognitive development; many authors have tackled this aspect, resulting in the publication of many studies. From the field of physical education, some concern about this issue has been apparent, as some beliefs, generally based on intuition, have often emerged stating that good motor development necessarily implies good cognitive performance. This study aims at detecting possible relationships between motor and intellectual registers categorised in three groups: gross and fine motor skills, motor skills involved in school education, and mental aptitudes (verbal and numerical).
