|Abstract:||In this paper we present a number of studies, some with humans and some with animals that have been directly influenced by the work of Philip Teitelbaum. As appropriate for a festschrift, we integrate a number of contributions from different fields (specifically, clinical psychopathology and neurobiology) and present the studies, not so much chronologically, but in ways that illustrate some of the key lessons that we have learned from Philip Teitelbaum. We would summarize these lessons as follows: (1) Complex and precise tools are required to assess the complexity of specific behaviors: using simplified tools will bias our understanding of the behavior itself. (2) Studying a specific behavior in atypical brain conditions is required to fully understand that behavior and how the brain controls it. (3) Considering the evolutionary basis of human behavior, studying corresponding behaviors in other mammalian species is required to strengthen and deepen our knowledge of specific human behaviors. In this paper we describe studies on motor development in humans and mice and their implication for the diagnosis of autism and early parental care that illustrate these three lessons.
