  For example, her developmental-plasticity hypothesis of speciation is a plausible addition to current theories. Problems arise, though, in her push toward microevolution, which highlights the biggest shortcoming of this book, a failure to provide a formal version of its central thesis. Neural plasticity -- the brain's ability to change in response to normal developmental processes, experience, and injury -- is a critically important phenomenon for both neuroscience and psychology. This book is a unique contribution to research and to the literature on clinical neuroscience.

of selectable variation in the developmental plasticity of organ-isms (for a more extensive discussion, see ref. 5). I argue that the origin of species differences can be explained, and the synthesis of Darwinism with genetics can be improved, by invoking two concepts: developmental recombination and genetic accommo-dation. Figure is based on data extracted from a topic search for ‘phenotypic plasticity’ OR ‘developmental plasticity’ OR ‘phenotypic flexibility’ OR ‘behavio*ral plasticity’ conducted on.

  Thus, ARF8 offers a link between environmental inputs and auxin-mediated plasticity of lateral root architecture. ARF8 has been shown to have developmental roles in the shoot (16) and subtle phenotypes in root (17) but was not previously known to be a regulator of developmental plasticity.   Plasticity peaks in childhood, a time when our brains are primed to change in response to experiences. There are two kinds of plasticity: experience-expectant and experience-dependent. In experience-expectant plasticity, external inputs during critical developmental windows guide normal development of the brain.

Developmental Plasticity and Evolution by Mary Jane West-Eberhard is an enormously important contribution to the modern (neo-Darwinian) theory of organic evolution. It presents a new way of understanding by: Description Developmental Plasticity: Behavioral and Biological Aspects of Variations in Development explores the behavioral and biological aspects of variations in development from a variety of theoretical viewpoints and research contexts.

Developmental Plasticity and Evolution is the first comprehensive synthesis on development and evolution: Developmental Plasticity book applies to all aspects of development, at all levels of. Developmental plasticity is the environmentally sensitive production of alternative phenotypes during development.

The phenomenon is ubiquitous and a major contributor to biological diversity. Because plasticity appears to be regulated by heritable variation and thus subject to natural selection, it can play a prominent role in adaptation.

Developmental Plasticity and Evolution is designed for biologists interested in the development and evolution of behavior, life-history patterns, ecology, physiology, morphology and speciation.

Developmental Plasticity and Evolution is the first comprehensive synthesis on development and evolution: it applies to all aspects of development, at all levels of organization and in all organisms, taking advantage of modern findings on behaviour, genetics, endocrinology, molecular biology, evolutionary theory and phylogenetics to show the connections between developmental mechanisms.

Description Developmental Plasticity: Behavioral and Biological Aspects of Variations in Development explores the behavioral and biological aspects of variations in development from a Book Edition: 1. Developmental Plasticity and Evolution is designed for biologists interested in the development and evolution of behavior, life-history patterns, ecology, physiology, morphology and speciation.

It will also appeal to evolutionary paleontologists, anthropologists, psychologists, and teachers of general biology.

Developmental Plasticity of Inhibitory Circuitry approaches the subject of inhibitory plasticity from several levels of analysis, from synapses to circuits to systems to clinical, summarizing several possible mechanisms and collecting some of the most fascinating work in this under-studied area.

It is meant to provide an overview for basic and. Developmental plasticity is the process by which later life traits are shaped by the early life environment.

Specifically, it refers to the process according to which a single genotype (i.e., genetic makeup of an organism) leads to distinct and lasting phenotypes (i.e., outward biological and psychological manifestations) under alterations of environmental interactions.

4 DEVELOPMENTAL PLASTICITY AND EVOLUTION In her synthetic book, West‐Eberhard () encouraged evolutionary biologists to “put the flexible phenotype first,” and to begin their evolutionary explanations with the origin of a novel phenotype. Developmental Plasticity and Evolution is designed for biologists interested in the development and evolution of behavior, life-history patterns, ecology, physiology, morphology and speciation.

In this book development includes not only embryology and the ontogeny of morphology, sometimes portrayed inadequately as governed by "regulatory genes," but also behavioral development and physiological adaptation, where plasticity is mediated by genetically complex mechanisms like.

Developmental Recombination and Parallel Species Pairs. Recurrent phenotypes, similar or identical phenotypic traits with discontinuous phylogenetic distributions, are quite common in a wide diversity of taxa ().Their similarity is sometimes attributed to parallel evolution, the independent origin of phenotypic similarity due to selection and adaptative change in similar environmental conditions.

Data from studies of decision-making, learning and discrimination demonstrate that early life conditions have an impact on subsequent neural growth, maintenance and cognition, with important ecological and evolutionary implications.

Of all the questions addressed in the field of psychology perhaps the most important relate to the issue of human plasticity, or in other words, the human capacity to change. While techniques and strategies for implementing change dominate the self-development and psychological literature, what is less frequently addressed is how change.
