How to build a brain: Multiple memory systems have evolved and only some of them are constructivist

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):558-559 (1997)
Much of our work with enriched experience and training in animals supports the Quartz & Sejnowski (Q&S) thesis that environmental information can interact with pre-existing neural structures to produce new synapses and neural structure. However, substantial data as well as an evolutionary perspective indicate that multiple information-capture systems exist: some are constructivist, some are selectionist, and some may be tightly constrained.
