Self-organizing individual di V erences in brain development

  title={Self-organizing individual di V erences in brain development},
  author={Marc D. Lewis},
Brain development is self-organizing in that the unique structure of each brain evolves in unpredictable ways through recursive modiWcations of synaptic networks. In this article, I review mechanisms of neural change in real time and over development, and I argue that change at each of these time scales embodies principles of self-organizing systems. I demonstrate how corticolimbic conWgurations that emerge within occasions lay down synaptic structure across occasions, giving rise to individual… CONTINUE READING
