Human Behavior, Learning, and the Developing Brain
"Synthesizing the breadth of current knowledge on brain-behavior relationships in atypically developing children, this important volume integrates theories and data from multiple disciplines. Leading authorities present their latest research on specific clinical problems, including autism, Williams syndrome, learning and language disabilities, ADHD, and issues facing infants of diabetic mothers. In addition, the effects of social stress and maltreatment on brain development and behavior are thoroughly reviewed. Illustrating the uses of cutting-edge methods from developmental neuroscience, developmental psychology, and cognitive science, the contributors emphasize the implications of their findings for real-world educational and clinical practices. An authoritative stand-alone reference, this book can also be purchased in combination with the companion volume on typical development. Together, these volumes provide a comprehensive overview of the field. They represent the contemporary successor to Dawson and Fischer's influential single-volume work, Human Behavior and the Developing Brain."
