Intellectual structure which may develop at virtually any period of life, starting when babies and youngsters figure out how to modify their conduct to environmental circumstances. There are structures for all things, from the basic suckling of infancy to the elaborate actions associated with operating a vehicle; with maturity, the concentration changes from behavioral structures to intellectual structures.
