From Ian Cox:

Re: Built-in brain “templates” may clue tots to threats (Sept. 18): I’m not surprised by this finding. It makes sense in evolutionary terms. It reminds me of a piece of psychological research a few decades ago. Experiments with a glass floor which extended over a drop found that babies old enough to crawl would not venture over the drop. Something was warning them that it was dangerous.
