Gandelman neatly combines the historical beginnings of the topics he discusses with the most recent findings to demonstrate how particular research interests have developed ... the book should be accessible to those with introductory levels of psychology or biology ... I am pleased that, at last, a textbook covering 'Developmental Psychobiology' has been produced ... the book is very good and suitable not only for undergraduates but also for postgraduate students and as a valuable resource for researchers in the field. I recommend the book, most strongly, to all those involved in the teaching, and researching, of Developmental Psychobiology. (Peter G. Hepper, The Queen's University of Belfast, Animal Behaviour, 48, 4, 1994)
Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of developmental psychobiology, this textbook explores both the psychological and biological influences on the development of behaviour, using research on both animal and human subjects to support principles and hypotheses. The arrangement of the book is topical rather than chronological, and it covers embryonic behaviour, the influence of hormones, threats to development, postnatal maternal influences, and early stimulation. Play, learning and memory, and finally weaning and puberty complete this volume. This comprehensive work provides a history of this subdiscipline, from the earliest work of Wilhelm Preyer in 1885 to the most recent research on the psychobiology of development.See all Product description

I bought this book for a college course nearly a year ago, but just couldn't get into it. I was able to read what chapters I needed for the course, but the language in the book was a bit more technical than I could handle. I would recommend it for those interesting in the biological aspect of psychology.
