Prominent investigators in the fields of neuroscience and behavior come together in this volume to examine the brain's prefrontal cortex. Exploring evolutionary issues, neurobiology, neuropsychology, and neuropathology, these experts advance the knowledge of the growth, structure, and function of this brain region as it relates to human behavior and development. Based on multiple human and primate research studies, the book sheds light on typical brain growth and simultaneously describes the functional and developmental consequences of acquired and developmental damage to the prefontal cortex. The authors address specific types of brain injuries and lesions, explaining how these factors can affect cognitive, behavioral, and social functions such as memory, attention, decision making, and language abilities. For neuropsychologists, neurobiologists, psychologists, and researchers in developmental psychology and learning disabilities, this volume ensures a comprehensive understanding of the research on the development and function of the prefrontal cortex.
