Description

The brain performs its tasks as an information processing system with "knowledge" about the problems it has to solve. This "knowledge" comes from two sources of information; from phylogenetic memory and from individual memory. Phylogenetic memory is coded in our DNA and individual memory grows from our experience with the environment. Both types of memory must work together to represent current "knowledge". Written by leading scientists in the fields of developmental biology, and learning and memory research, this book discusses the validity of the general thesis that mechanisms utilized in the development of the nervous system are reutilized in the adult to mediate formation and maintenance of memory.
