The right way, the wrong way, and the army way: A dendritic parable

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):575-575 (1997)
We suggest that neither selectionism nor constructivism alone are responsible for learning-based changes in the brain. On the basis of quantitative structural studies of human brain tissue it has been possible to find evidence of both increase and decrease in tissue mass at synaptic and dendritic levels. It would appear that both processes are involved in the course of learning-dependent changes.
