ELMAN RETHINKING INNATENESS PDF

Rethinking Innateness applied insights from neurobiology and neural network modelling to brain development. It questioned whether some of the "hard nativist " positions, such as those adopted by Noam Chomsky , Steven Pinker and Elizabeth Spelke , are biologically plausible. For example, the authors challenged a claim [4] by Pinker that children are born with innate domain-specific knowledge of the principles of grammar, by questioning how the knowledge that Pinker suggests might actually be encoded in the genes. Elman et al. But they argue that evidence from a number of sources, such as brain plasticity the ability of a brain to change its response properties during development shows that information cannot be hard-wired in this way.

Rethinking Innateness asks the question, "What does it really mean to say that a behavior is innate? These outcomes often may be highly constrained and universal, yet are not themselves directly contained in the genes in any domain-specific way. One of the key contributions of Rethinking Innateness is a taxonomy of ways in which a behavior can be innate. These include constraints at the level of representation, architecture, and timing; typically, behaviors arise through the interaction of constraints at several of these levels.

The ideas are explored through dynamic models inspired by a new kind of "developmental connectionism," a marriage of connectionist models and developmental neurobiology, forming a new theoretical framework for the study of behavioral development.

While relying heavily on the conceptual and computational tools provided by connectionism, Rethinking Innateness also identifies ways in which these tools need to be enriched by closer attention to biology. Jeffrey L. Elman , Elizabeth A.
