Adapted Physical Activity: An Interdisciplinary Approach

From 21-24 June 1989 the overseas Federation of tailored actual task (IF APA) held its seventh overseas Symposium "Adapted actual job -An Interdisciplinary technique" in Berlin (West). This was once the 1st time that this symposium has been held in a German talking kingdom, and it provided specified demanding situations to the organizers.

The definition also excludes various codes proposed by Barbieri (2003), such as a ‘histone code’ or the ‘sugar code’, which are different ways of transmitting the ‘same’ type of information. A further consequence is that since the evolution of a new biological code relies on a previously existing one, a functional and evolutionary hierarchy is established between them. Barbieri (2003) pointed out that new organic codes do not replace previous ones, but the hypothesis that a new code derives from transformation of a previously existing phenotypic entity implies more than that: it implies that the previous code cannot disappear.

Examples of new ways of transmitting information include the origin of template replication, the genetic code, developmental and epigenetic regulation, and human language. The theory of major transitions has the merit of defining evolutionary increases in complexity both at the phenotypic-organisational (the newly evolved super-units) and genotypic-informational (the new methods of transmitting biological information) levels. A second advantage is that it avoids anthropocentric criteria of complexity.

Thus, transcription factors, neural cells and brains, behaviour and cognition, and human language all derived their modular The evolution of order organisation from previously existing disposable, modularly organised phenotypic entities. , 2000) are central concepts in evolutionary studies, but tend to be treated separately. The evolutionary formulation of Schrödinger’s Principle of Order from Order and the concept of modularity transfer unify those debates to a certain extent. All the biological codes are different manifestations of Schrödinger’s Principle of Order from Order: they are ways in which different types of microscopic order or information is converted into different forms of macroscopic or phenotypic order.
