Abstract

On the basis of their own data the authors postulate that the increase in sensory input during early ontogeny results in a delay in the development of the sensory systems formed earlier. In connection with this, the sensory basis of behavioral patterns becomes ineffective, causing their reorganization and the appearance of new forms of behavior. Limitation of sensory input during the critical periods of development stimulates the accelerated manifestation of behavioral patterns. However, this acceleration also has long-lasting negative effects— alterations in the processes of learning and memory in adult animals.
