Quick Reference

A principle of development, based on studies of infant behaviour, which refers to the intimate relationship that exists between the growth of an individual's body structures and the behaviour of an individual. Interweaving applies to the development of neural pathways between antagonistic pairs of muscles so that reciprocal innervation occurs. The development of the neural network results in a progressive spiral of more advanced forms of behaviour.
