Neuroplasticity is considered an essential part of development.
Supporters of neuroconstructivism, such as Karmiloff-Smith, argue against innate modularity of the mind. Instead, emphasis is put on innate domain relevant biases. These bias are understood as aiding learning and directing attention. Module-like structure are therefore the product of both experience and these innate biases. Neuroconstructivism can therefore being seen as a bridge between Jerry Fodor's Psychological nativism and Jean Piaget's Theory of cognitive development.
