Endless minds most beautiful (pages 30-34)


The marriage of evolution and development to produce the new discipline ‘evo‐devo’ in biology is situated in the general history of evolutionary biology, and its significance for developmental cognitive science is discussed. The discovery and description of the highly conserved, robust and ‘evolvable’ mechanisms that organize the vertebrate body plan and fundamental physiology have direct implications for what we should investigate in the evolution of behavior and cognition.
