NEURAL DARWINISM

was first proposed by U.S. neuroscientist Gerald M. Edelman (1929 - ) in 1987, in which he explained his biological concept of memory and learning in the context of specific neuronal structures in side the brain. This type of theory is generally considered as in the style of Darwin and hence earns the name neural DARWINISM.

NEURAL DARWINISM: "Neural Darwinism simply implies that there are specific structures within the brain that deal with specific stimuli."
