This chapter discusses how the human brain differs significantly from the brains of other animals. It may be possible that the evolutionary process of building the brains of different animals reflects certain differences in molecular and cellular events, although the general principles of the development of the nervous system apply to these animals. To illustrate this further, the author analyzes the visual system of different species and finds significant differences between the visual system of humans and that of other animals.
