DESCRIPTION: The last of nine pages on Life (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in the study of dinosaurs (and other Mesozoic diaspsids) and of palaeoneurology and ethological aspects of evolution. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to other resources in the life sciences (including the life sciences in general, morphology and physiology, and biology education; molecular and cell biology, development, and genetics; biodiversity, systematics and taxonomy, microbiology, and plant biology; zoology; the biology of cetaceans and of primates, and ecology), resources in the neurosciences (including neurobiology, ethology, psychology, and cognitive science), and other resources in evolutionary biology (general studies, the origin of life, evolutionary theory and phylogeny; and palaeobiology).

KEYWORDS: brain; dinosaurs; ichthyosaurs; plesiosaurs; pterosaurs; ethology; intelligence; palaeoneurology

Evolution of Brain and Behaviour

The Gods of the earth and sea
sought thr' Nature to find this Tree
But their search was all in vain:
There grows one in the Human Brain.
William Blake

Intelligent life is such a remarkable phenomenon to emerge out of the basic physical laws that some connection seems implied, i.e., some correlation between laws and consequences of the laws...
Fred Hoyle

The human brain could have evolved into what it is now only if its capacity to generate and retain particular engrams was strongly selected for. It is unlikely that the selection mechanism involved any single behavioral traits or that it was linear; we have come all too far in all too short a time.
J. T. Fraser

The issue about the evolution of intelligence is, I think, simply this one: the evolution of intelligence is a very rapid matter, and the evolution of environmental control which depends upon it is still more rapid.
Philip Morrison
