I can’t resist another article on brain development complete with multi-colour 3D MRI illustrations and a diagram with pointers to things like “The Mouse Brain” and “The Reptile Brain.”
(DG is drawn to research like this because it helps him understand himself. For so long, so much of what he thought of as thought was really just an argument between his reptile brain and his mouse brain. This also helps explain his growing tendency to speak of himself in both the third and first person.)
This connects with my earlier post on brain evolution and rats and human nature.
