Summary
Over the past few decades, innovative, non-invasive 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. This volume - one of a limited number of texts that provide a voice for a growing new generation of developmentalists interested in the brain - is distinguished by its breadth of topics, which include the development of memory, cognition, and emotions, and individual differences in these domains. While accessible to those with little background in the neurosciences, this book portrays the complexity and depth of brain-behavior relations in development. An important resource for investigators in the fields of developmental psychology, neuropsychology, behavioral neuroscience, clinical psychology, and education, it also serves as a textbook for graduate students, especially students of human psychological development
