The neurodevelopmental hypothesis of schizophrenia has gained increasing acceptance. This hypothesis assumes a disruption in the normal development of the brain, secondary to genetic factors, environmental factors, or, most likely, a combination of both.

Novel species are introduced into a network of interacting replicators either (i) as mutants of members of the network (ii) as unrelated immigrants. We consider the meta-population dynamics of such a system. In the first case the appearance of mutants leads to a slow growth of the replicator network, proportional ...
