Basic Stages in an Animal Development Animal development is the process that leads to the formation of a new animal or organism from cells that derived from one or more parent individuals. Animal or organism arises through a process that begins with the fertilized egg and ends with a new individual. The fertilized egg will undergo cell divisions to increase the number of cells and simultaneously the cells produced will differentiated into organs and organs systems of the fully formed organism. Animal will go through six basic stages of development. They are fertilization of egg (ovum) and sperm, cleavage, gastrulation, neurulation, organogenesis and metamorphosis (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1).
CDL Assignment Q3. How do nature and nurture interact with one another to determine the development of an individual? Discuss with specific reference to physical and motor development. The interaction between nature and nurture play an important role in determining the development of an individual as they are interrelated and it is a dynamic interplay between the genes and the external environment which begins at conception and continuous throughout one’s life due to the nature of adaptability and plasticity we as humans possess. Nurture is more of the social environment which surrounds a child from birth to independence and these include interaction with parents, siblings and immediate family and as the child grows it extends to teachers
Ch. 2 DBQ: Nature vs. Nurture The long-running Nature versus nurture debate is whether human behavior is determined by the environment, either prenatal or during a person 's life, or by a person 's genes. Nature is what we think of as pre-wiring and is influenced by genetic inheritance and other biological factors. Nurture is generally taken as the influence of external factors on conception e.g. the product of exposure, experience and learning on an individual.
From the moment a person is born to the moment they die, they are constantly changing with the effects of their surroundings and their decisions. People are also influenced by their genetics, which determine hair color and other traits. These all contribute to the development of people and who they become as a whole, including their personality, values, and morals. People are influenced by many factors in life and psychology studies the human mind and its behavior throughout time. Literature and history often conveys the difference between nature and nurture in the development of people.
Developmental psychology is a broad area of study that explores the development of humans over time, examines the ways they develop over the course of their lifespan and how the cultures evolve. Those who work in this field seek to improve their understanding of how people learn and adapt to changes over time. Developmental psychologists work in hospitals, educational institutes, military and assisted living facilities. They also conduct research and teach in higher education or government institutes. People continuously experience many physical, cognitive, social, intellectual, and emotional changes throughout their lives.
This branch of philosophy refers to three distinct topics- 1) the biological evolution of cognitive mechanisms in animals and humans; 2) a theory that knowledge itself evolves by natural selection; and 3) the study of the historical discovery of new abstract entities. While evolutionary epistemology refers to the theory that applies the concepts of biological evolution and stages of the development of an organism to the growth of human knowledge, it also argues that knowledge, especially scientific theories, evolve according to the principles of natural selection. However, the development of knowledge can be in the form of additions to and/or consistent modifications of the existing knowledge, the initiation and growth of knowledge, the degree of acceptance of old and new knowledge or its evolution over and throughout time in a particular environment. This leads us to the claim- “Evolution of knowledge is based on the adaptation and the ability to give birth to new knowledge.” To answer this claim and support the ever-evolving knowledge, it is important to consider 'falsification of theories' as one of the possible reasons of development and evolution of
The first part of the system is the cervix. The cervix is important to carry out many bodily processes. It controls the health of the baby and it's mother. The cervix is Latin for neck. The cervix permits the section of menstrual liquid; advances ripeness; secures the uterus, upper conceptive tract, and creating from pathogens.
Ecological systems theory: This theory looks at a child’s development within the context of the system of relationships that form his or her environment. Bronfenbrenner’s theory defines complex “layers” of environment, each having an effect on a child’s development. This theory has recently been renamed “bioecological systems theory” to emphasize that a child’s own biology is a primary environment fueling her development. In this essay I will be focusing on the interaction between factors in the child’s maturing biology, his immediate family/community environment, and the societal landscape fuels and steers his development. Changes or conflict in any one layer will ripple throughout other layers.
DEVELOPMENT PSYCHOLOGY: REFLECTIVE ESSAY In life of an individual there are several developmental changes or events which occur as continuity of span of life. Some of life developmental stages include infantile, adolescence, maturity, and adulthood. These phases have biological, social, psychological and physiognomic reasons to which an individual completed the course of life. Psychological analysis upon the developmental stages include the focus on characterization, demarcation and the social interaction of individual’s life (Baltes & Schaie, 2013). Adolescence is the stage which has more potential and energetics but with all positive aspects this stage has some developmental events which need to be observe and controlled for making a normal and good personality.
