Meet the Author

Dr. Joseph began his scientific career in the 1970s manipulating primate brain cells by varying the environment, and in so doing was the first to discover and publish evidence that primate brain cells continue to grow, compete with one another for synaptic and functional representation, atrophy when deprived of sensory input and recover when competing cells are denied sensory input, and that the primate brain is functionally plastic (neuroplasticity) and that the brain is constantly rewiring itself and neural networks and cellular circuits are constantly being formed and reorganized (Joseph & Casagrande 1978, 1980; Casagrande & Joseph, 1978, 1980). Thus, Dr. Joseph was the first to demonstrate neuroplasticity, recovery of function, neural competition, and natural selection in the primate brain, and based on his discoveries developed and published a complex theory on neural networking and competition (Joseph 1982) which was later popularized by another scientist who called it "Neural Darwinism." Also, in the 1970s, Dr. Joseph published evidence that physiological, perceptual, visual, behavioral, and cognitive functioning including learning and memory, could be altered or enhanced by varying the environment, and further demonstrated that sex differences in physiology, learning, memory, cognition, and behavior, could be altered and reversed by manipulating exposure to testosterone and estrogen (Joseph et al., 1978; Joseph 1979; Joseph & Gallagher, 1980). Based on this research, Dr. Joseph became convinced that the environment was acting on gene selection, turning genes on and off thereby releasing hidden stores of information which directly effect not just development but play a major role in evolution. Subsequently, Dr. Joseph continued to make and publish major discoveries, published best selling scholarly texts which received the highest praise by a variety of scientific journals, and advanced and published major theories in the biological and evolutionary sciences which were immediately adopted by other scientists.
