Why a developmental perspective is critical for understanding human cognition
D'Souza, Dean and Karmiloff Smith, Annette (2016) Why a developmental perspective is critical for understanding human cognition. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 39 , ISSN 0140-525X.
The evidence that Anderson (2014) marshals in support of his theory of neural reuse is persuasive. However, his theoretical framework currently lacks a developmental dimension. We argue that an account of the fundamental aspects of developmental change, as well as the temporal context within which change occurs, would greatly enhance Anderson's theory.
