Thoroughly examining brain-behavior relationships in atypically developing children, this important volume integrates theories and data from multiple disciplines. Leading authorities present 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 reviewed. Demonstrating 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. Illustrations include eight pages in full color.

"A fascinating introduction to the rapidly developing field of developmental cognitive neuroscience and its implications for advancing our understanding of developmental psychopathology. It should be particularly valuable in orienting graduate students to exciting new possibilities for increasing understanding and remediation of debilitating disabilities." - PsycCRITIQUES "In this valuable collection, leading scientists present the latest findings about the biological bases of developmental disorders, including dyslexia, autism, and attentional deficits. The book also includes early markers for these disorders, as well as appropriate educational interventions." - Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA "The stellar array of authors represented in this volume guarantees that the reader will be provided with state-of-the-art information about neurodevelopmental disorders. No undergraduate or graduate course on the topic can do without this book." - Uta Frith, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Department of Psychology, University College London, UK "In synthesizing the fields of cognitive and affective neuroscience and developmental psychopathology, the book presents novel conceptual and methodological tools for studying adaptive, maladaptive, and resilient developmental outcomes." - Dante Cicchetti, Institute of Child Development and Department of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota, USA
