The more we discover about the basic structure of vertebrate and invertebrate evolution, the more impressive the evidence of its conservative nature becomes. Evidence for commonalities versus special adaptations in brain evolution, with particular attention to rules for the proliferation of the cortex will be discussed. Conserved developmental rules that produce highly predictable brain organization seem best described as rules that produce generic, optimal organization rather than limiting… CONTINUE READING
