Plastic Reason

This chapter asserts that the overarching questions that had structured the work of the lab from its inception in 1989 to 2004–2005 was: Do homeoproteins transfer between cells? Is this transfer an important embryological process, one that organizes the cellular emergence of the brain, one that renders the adult brain plastic? The book's research had followed the emergence of these questions and the efforts to answer them. The the chapter states that the answers that concluded his work for the book were merely the beginnings of a new episode of the study done in the lab. The chapter enumerates the new or research positions of the people who had advanced the lab's experimental system.

Keywords:   homeoproteins, embryological process, cellular emergence, brain, adult brain
