Open Peer Commentary Quartz & Sejnowski: Cognitive development
Neural constraints on cognitive modularity?

Is (some) innate cognitive modularity consistent
with a lack of innate neural modularity? Quartz &
Sejnowski's (Q&S's) implicit negative answer to
his question fuels their antinativist and antimodular cognitive
conclusions. I attempt here to suggest a positive answer and to
solicit discussion of this crucial issue.
