Studying development in the 21(st) century

By Michael S.C. Thomas, Gert Westermann, Denis Mareschal, Mark H. Johnson, S. Sirois and Michael Spratling

Abstract

In this response, we consider four main issues arising from the commentaries to the target article. These include further details of the theory of interactive specialization, the relationship between neuroconstructivism and selectionism, the implications of neuroconstructivism for the notion of representation, and the role of genetics in theories of development. We conclude by stressing the importance of multidisciplinary approaches in the future study of cognitive development and by identifying the directions in which neuroconstructivism can expand in the Twenty-first Century
