Where do new forms of behavior and thought such as riding a bicycle or a new chess strategy come from (see also Poggio, 2012)? This is a question that other approaches to cognition typically ignore, sometimes going so far as to build in miniature pre-formed versions of new behaviors (McClelland, 2010; Smith, 2001; Smith & Pereira, 2009). In contrast, a DST perspective suggests that new behaviors can emerge organically as subtle changes in the components of the system —the strength of a muscle that stabilizes a reach, the presentation of objects sequentially in time, the association of an object with a specific location—softly assemble and pro- duce changes in cognition and action.
