It is very similar to the modern “constructivist” view of development that includes the ideas of probabilistic epigenesis, relational causality, and the extreme importance of dynamic interplay (= “drama”) of various factors in the process of development (Gottlieb, 1992; Johnson, 1997; Karmiloff-Smith, 2002). Genes, the organism, and the environment (most importantly, the social environment) constitute the “coactive” developmental factors. Genes bring their biases into the system and thus define not a specific skill, such as reading, but “domain-relevant” functions: those that are genetically connected, for example by belonging to the same type of input (Karmiloff-Smith, 2002).

We became aware of this data only at the end of the 1990s after we had completed our initial studies in the neuropsychology of the norm that showed that normal subjects (both adults and children) can be divided into three groups depending on the presence of relative weaknesses in various components of their HMFs (Akhutina, 1998b R; Yablokova, 1998 R). We were very pleasantly surprised to find out that our division based on neuropsychological characteristics coincided with the one derived from the factor structure of Wechsler’s test data.

Similarly the condition of certain brain structures brings their biases into a system and defines not a specific skill but domain-relevant functions, such as successful development of motor or auditory functions.
