Learning takes place over the entire course of a person or species’ life.

[...] Donald Hebb developed theories of learning that were both affected by neuro-physiology as well as demonstrated the impact that learning has in both ideal and limited environmental conditions. The first theoretical concept that affects learning is restricted environments. With this particular theory examples are presented to demonstrate the effects that occur during formative years of a species’ life. When that species is deprived of a particular function then the development of that part of the brain is hindered; thus learning is inhibited. [...]


[...] Another correlation to evolutionary involvement and learning is the idea that children should be taught certain things as he or she was mature enough to absorb the information properly. Evolutionary theory also states that genetically humans have a predisposition to learn certain things. An example of predisposed learning material would be language. Children automatically learn to speak through observation of those around them. The exception to this rule would be caused as a result to a problem in the neuro-physiological make-up of the child.
