of the receptor mutant, and external application of the synthetic peptides restored contiguous Casparian strip formation in the mutant roots.

Adaptation and intelligence: Organic selection and phenocopy
The two studies' methodological differences notwithstanding, we believe an apt framework for explaining this lies in the hypotheses of Tannock and Brown (2000): (a) the phenocopy
hypothesis, which posits that ADHD as a disorder is secondary to reading disability or another primary disorder, and that only secondary symptoms are present, none with profound characteristics such as, for example, cognitive or cerebral deficit and (b) the etiologic hypothesis, according to which the comorbid subgroup of ADHD + RD has a different etiology than the disorders as they occur independently of one another.
