Neurotrophic factors, neuronal selectionism, and neuronal proliferation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):561-562 (1997)
Abstract
Quartz & Sejnowski (Q&S) disregard evidence that suggests that their view of dendrites is inadequate and they ignore recent results concerning the role of neurotrophic factors in synaptic remodelling. They misrepresent neuronal selectionism and thus erect a straw-man argument. Finally, the results discussed in section 4.2 require neuronal proliferation, but this does not occur during the period of neuronal development of relevance here.
