"The third edition of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience presents a thorough updating and enhancement of the classic text that introduced the rapidly expanding field of developmental cognitive neuroscience." (Breitbart.com: Business Wire, 22 February 2011)
Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
has become the best advanced undergraduate textbook that lays out the agenda and approach to this rapidly expanding field. In this updated third edition, I particularly like the emphasis on reconciling brain–based research with pure behavioural approaches and why students must appreciate the contribution of neuroscience to building better models of cognitive development. Professor Bruce Hood, University of Bristol, UK
The way in which genes and environment shape brain networks underlying human behavior is now among the most active issues in science. This new edition of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience provides a comprehensive approach to theory, data and application to this issue and others within the perspectives of Cognitive and Social Neuroscience.
Michael I. Posner, Professor Emeritus, University of Oregon, US
This book, which launched the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience 13 years ago, shows no sign of aging. This up–to–date and newly revised volume eloquently captures the key domains of the discipline and will prove essential reading to both students and established scientists alike. Well–written and well–researched, this revised edition will serve as both a resource and inspiration for anyone interested in the intersection of brain and cognitive development.
