Can simulating evolution on a computer explain our enormous brains? - Los Angeles Times


Los Angeles Times
Human brain evolution is not something you can test in the lab. It would take hundreds of years, if not thousands, to reveal how evolutionary pressures shaped the modern human brain. And even if you could do those experiments, they would probably not ...

People living with autoimmune diseases just want to feel better. While most of us can trust our immune systems to identify and attack only the unwelcome invaders—like bacteria or viruses—for reasons we don't yet fully understand, some patients ...

Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) - Coevolution

Los Angeles, California - United States

In a CAS, the parts of the system are massively entangled, such that changes in one part bring about similar changes in other parts. Growth and development of one part of the system are dependent on the growth and development of other parts of the system. This is the essence of co-evolution in human systems.

People learn together and from each other as they adapt to interpersonal and environmental conditions of the system. They self-organize, resulting in all parts being changed in ways that move the system toward greater coherence internally and between its internal and external environments. When a system is unable to coevolve, it experiences turbulence and conflict as it attempts to resolve and/or negotiate across emergent differences.

Understanding Evolution - Coevolution
United States

The term coevolution is used to describe cases where two (or more) species reciprocally affect each other's evolution. So for example, an evolutionary change in the morphology of a plant, might affect the morphology of an herbivore that eats the plant, which in turn might affect the evolution of the plant, which might affect the evolution of the herbivore...and so on. Coevolution is likely to happen when different species have close ecological
