From the School of Computer Science and Department of Psychology at McGill University, I marvel at the world through algorithmic lenses. My specific interests are in quantum computing, evolutionary game theory, modern evolutionary synthesis, and theoretical cognitive science. Previously I was at the Institute for Quantum Computing and Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo and a visitor to the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore.

comment Modern reference for Kropotkin's lazy bees
@niallhaslam that is his full treatment of the subject. He says nothing more on it in terms of defining things.

comment Can children restore brain cells?
@nico I didn't mean to suggest that they were, otherwise I'd submit my comment as an answer. I was just going off a vibe I got from the question. I don't know anything about regeneration and so did not got beyond a comment.

comment Can children restore brain cells?
There is a misconception in your question about the absence of neurogenesis in adults. It is definitely present in adults as has been shown by a host of recent studies. If you want some technical details on neurogenesis or a question about what exactly changes in children at the end of critical period.
