This is the long-awaited second edition of the classic introduction that gave the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience its name. This book continues to be the definitive introduction to the subject, reviewing the current state of knowledge in the field in the context of an integrative theoretical framework within which the plasticity and maturation of the brain are analyzed. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. Changes include a new chapter on objects and number; an updated chapter on "building a brain," to cover activity-dependent neural development, changes in adolescence, and more; a new emphasis on different developmental disorders; a completely revised chapter on the emerging social brain, to place more emphasis on aspects of social cognition other than basic face processing; and an extensively revised chapter on integrating developmental cognitive neuroscience, to focus on a new framework for understanding human functional brain development - "interactive specialization."From the Back Cover:
The publication of the third edition of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience is a testament to the dramatic expansion of the field in recent years. While continuing to serve as the definitive introduction to the subject, this new edition is thoroughly updated and enhanced to reflect the latest advances in our understanding of brain-behavior relationships and development. Two all-new background foundational chapters are included. One provides an overview of populations and developmental disorders and introduces established and new methodologies critical for advancements in the field. The second new chapter focuses on recent advances in the integration of molecular and population genetics with studies of brain development and function.
Further enhancements include a greater emphasis on such topics as mid-childhood and adolescence, practical applications of basic research, and the emergence of functional networks of various regions of the brain. New discussions on recent technological breakthroughs are also included, as well as material on the increasing relevance of genetics to developmental psychology and neuroscience.
The third edition of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience is certain to solidify the reputation of the landmark text that was instrumental in the creation of a field of study that is making great strides in addressing fundamental questions of human development.
