About this book

Originally published in 1929, Anatomy and the Problem of Behaviour contains the text of three lectures by George Coghill on the subject of the anatomical basis for typical behavioural development in animals. Coghill takes salamanders as his particular case study to connect the growth of the nervous system in an organism with its observable behaviour. Anatomy and the Problem of Behaviour will be of value to anyone with an interest in animal behaviour and the physiological basis for behaviour.



1. The development of behaviour and its anatomical explanation in a typical vertebrate
2. Dynamic antecedents of neural mechanisms
3. Growth of the nerve cell and the interpretation of behaviour
