Neuroconstructivism - I

How the Brain Constructs Cognition

Denis Mareschal, Mark Johnson, Sylvain Sirois, Michael Spratling, Michael Thomas, and Gert Westermann

What are the processes, from conception to adulthood, that enable a single cell to grow into a sentient adult? They are so complex that any attempt to understand development necessitates a multi-disciplinary approach, integrating data from cognitive studies, computational modeling, and neuroimagingan approach until now seldom taken when considering child development. Neuroconstructivism is a major two-volume work that seeks to redress this balance, presenting an integrative new framework for considering development.
