  abstract =     "A review is given of approaches to growing neural
                 networks and electronic circuits. A new method for
                 growing graphs and circuits using a developmental
                 process is discussed. The method is inspired by the
                 view that the cell is the basic unit of biology.
                 Programs that construct circuits are evolved to build a
                 sequence of digital circuits at user specified
                 iterations. The programs can be run for an arbitrary
                 number of iterations so circuits of huge size could be
                 created that could not be evolved. It is shown that the
                 circuit building programs are capable of correctly
                 predicting the next circuit in a sequence of larger
                 even parity functions. The new method however finds
                 building specific circuits more difficult than a
                 non-developmental method.",
