Human Behaviour and the Developing Brain

Edited by Geraldine Dawson, Edited by Kurt W. Fischer

Over the past few decades, innovative, noninvasive techniques for studying the activity of the brain have provided new insights into brain-behavior relations. Now, developmental scientists are using these techniques with young infants and children to shed light on the neural underpinnings of the developmental process. This highly enlightening text brings together a group of world-renowned scientists who believe, and demonstrate, that understanding brain-behavior relations from a developmental standpoint will yield fresh and unique insights into human nature. While accessible to those with little background in the neurosciences, this book adequately portrays the complexity and depth of brain-behavior relations in development.
