Human Behavior, Learning, and the Developing Brain: Atypical Development is an anthology of essays by experts in the field concerning the latest research on brain-behavior connections in atypically developing children. Covering brain development in children with autism, Williams syndrome, learning and language disabilities, ADHD, and cognitive deficits (in the case of infants of mothers with diabetes), Human Behavior, Learning, and the Developing Brain addresses the molecular and genetic bases of brain development, as well as neural structure and function, behavioral manifestations, and sociocultural contexts. Applied tools range from genetic markers and functional brain imaging to classroom evaluations. The practical use of this congregated wisdom can facilitate the prediction, early identification, and professional intervention to the benefit of children with atypical brain development. An ideal text for graduate-level psychology students and college library shelves.
