  • The  Tangled  Wing Chapter Four The Fabric of Meaning Alison  et  Claire
  • Overview— When  the  brain  starts  to   grow,  billions  of  neurons   must  be  born — 100,000  a  minute  by  the   division  of  parent  cells— Within  the  neurons — Dendrites  receive — Axons  transmit
  • Brain  Development— Is  not  random,  yet  it  is   impossible  to  predict— Tiny  differences  at  the   start  are  amplified  with   time. — Chaos  in  the  formal  sense— It  is  fast,  orderly,   amazingly  complex,  and   miraculous
  • Brain  Development— During  development,   spines  along  the   dendrites  form — Can  be  changed  either   by  genes  or  by   experience— Brain  development  is  a   combination  of  both
  • Genes— In  early  stages,  genes   determine  most  of  the   brains  development — Shape  forms— Genes  give  the  brain  a   predetermined  structure   and  design  based  on  the   genetic  material  from   parents.  — Tay-­‐Sachs  Disease  is  an   example  of  how  important   genes  are  for  brain   development.  
  • Experience/Environment— Environmental   enrichment— How  the  Brain  is   affected  by   stimulations
  • Theories— Purves— Changeux— Edelman— Goodwin  and  Kauffman
  • Conclusion— No  simple  construct  will   explain  how  the   dissimilar  tasks  of  brain   development  are  shared   between  genes  and   environment.  — However,  in  any  analysis   of  human  nature,  neither   can  be  ignored.
