Selection for Reinforcement-Free Learning Ability as an Organizing Factor in the Evolution of Cognition

Figure 1

Selection for correspondence. SP: selection pressures/evolutionary adaptation processes. L: learning/lifetime adaptation processes (implementation of learning ability updates implementation of behaviour). D: environmental dynamics. Selection for learning implies selection for update efficiency in the implementation of behaviour, that is, alignment of the dynamics of with the dynamics of . This alignment depends on correspondence between the structure of the behaviour implementation and the structure of the environment, leading to selection on correspondence (diagonal arrow).
