“Differentiationism” can reconcile selectionism and constructivism

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):568-569 (1997)
Increased complexity of representations in development probably results from the differentiation of distributed neural circuits. Axonal differentiation plays a crucial role in this process. Axonal differentiation appears to be achieved in stages, each involving combinations of constructive and regressive events controlled by cell intrinsic and cell extrinsic information.
