What spheres of neurobiological studies are the most important for us? I suppose at least six important trends of studies of the brain should be distinguished. We shall discuss each of them. стр. 6 EVOLUTION AND INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT It is impossible to understand the nature of human brain with its high mental abilities without understanding the nature of the evolution process.

The formation of this basic research trend is connected with Russian science, with the names of physiologists—Academician Leon Orbeli* and Corresponding Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Khachatur Koshtoyants. In 1956, Orbeli organized an ... Читать далее
