"There is a real lack of texts in the area of developmental cognitive neuroscience and Mark Johnson s book thus fills and important gap. It takes a decidedly neurocomputational perspective and provides a wonderful synthesis of fundamental issues and an overview of the state of empirical knowledge in this emerging field. It is definitely a clarion call for a new way of doing both developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience." Professor Bruce Pennington, University of Denver
"A major topic of this generation of research is to understand the interaction between environment and genetics every level from molecules to the behaviour of organisms. Johnson effectively argues that at the intermediate level of analysis present in cognitive neuroscience we will be able to illuminate this interaction during the course of development. This volume reviews evidence and organizes it in a way that allows one to see how behavioural and physiological experiments with humans and other organisms can help answer very general psychobiological issues. By illuminating basic issues of development this book is as important for students and researchers at the adult level as it is for students of infancy and childhood." Professor Mike Posner, University of Oregon--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
′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.’ — Professor Charles A. Nelson III, Harvard University Medical School and Children’s Hospital Boston, USSee all Product Description

Vision is given an entire chapter because of its importance to the organism. Also, the visual structures of the eyes are usefully understood as a direct pipeline into the brain, or, equivalently, as a simple extension of the brain. Higher level processing is described in the case of social interactions and speech processing.
No mention of mirror neurons. Perhaps these are not seen as significant for the infant's development?
In Chapter one, under the heading An Outline of this book, he talks about the 'next chapter'. One might reasonably assume a brief overview of each chapter, but this is not forthcoming. From 'the next chapter', he skips to Chapter 9 and leaves it at that.
In Chapter 6, he details three approaches, the final one of which is 'a number of neural correlates'. Turn the page and what do we see? Not a detailed examination of these approaches in the right order, but another set of approaches apparently specific to neural correlates, the last approach of the previous page. At no point does he continue with the stages detailed in his overview.
I'm afraid the whole thing is just too muddled, and I'm surprised the editor did not point this out to him.
