Example text

As it becomes evident that at least for some syndromes atypicalities are widespread across several regions or systems of the brain, more recent hypotheses have focused on putative differences in synaptic structure (Perisco & Bourgeron, 2006) or connectivity patterns (Just, Cherkassky, Keller, Kana, & Minshew, 2007; Minshew & Williams, 2007). These differences in microstructure are assumed to have compounding effects during postnatal development, that then differentially affect some domains of cognition or types of computation more than others.

In later chapters we will see that there is little evidence that the human neocortex possesses innate representations. The second alternative possibility is that both the architecture and the detailed pattern and strength of links are malleable as a result of training. In Chapter 4 we will see that only under extremely atypical environmental conditions, or in cases of genetic atypicality, do we see changes in the basic architecture of the primate brain. 9 10 1:3 The Biology of Change Why Take a Cognitive Neuroscience Approach to Development?

The developmental approach may allow different levels of hierarchical control to be observed independently. Specifically, it presents the opportunity to observe how various neurocognitive systems emerge and become integrated during development. For example, in Chapter 5 we will see how different brain pathways underlying eye movement control emerge and become integrated during development. 1:5 The Cause of Developmental Change Those inclined to see development as the unfolding of pre-existing information in the genes tend to adopt a maturational view of developmental psychology in which infants have reduced versions of the adult mind which increase by steps as particular brain pathways or structures mature.
