Abstract

The development of the central nervous system is possibly the most significant aspect of the growth of a mammal from embryo to adulthood. The central nervous system is obviously the main repository not only of the species’ inherited functional characteristics but also of the process of individuation. Whatever “engrams” constitute the basis of individual characteristics are laid down mainly in the central nervous system, and especially the brain, during its growth.
