Human Behavior, Learning, and the Developing Brain : Typical Development Paperback / softback
This volume brings together leading authorities from multiple disciplines to examine the relationship between brain development and behavior in typically developing children.
Presented are innovative cross-sectional and longitudinal studies that shed light on brain-behavior connections in infancy and toddlerhood through adolescence.
Chapters explore the complex interplay of neurobiological and environmental influences in the development of memory, language, reading, inhibitory control, and other core aspects of cognitive, emotional, and social functioning.
Throughout, the volume gives particular attention to what the research reveals about ways to support learning and healthy development in all children.
