In the final chapter of Volume 1 of Neuroconstructivism, the most exciting implications, both theoretical and practical, of the neuroconstructivist approach were laid out. Among these were several lessons for how hands on research could be carried out within a neuroconstructivist framework. One such lesson was to incorporate more computational modelling within research programs exploring the origins of cognition. Meanwhile, this present volume has focused on examples of how computational and neural network modelling can be used as tools to explore factors interact to shape representations. It will become apparent that these are still early days for the neuroconstructivist approach to brain and cognitive development.

Keywords:   neuroconstructivism, neuroconstructivist approach, computational modeling, neuroscience, cognitive development, micro-anatomy, neural network modelling
