Human Behavior, Learning, and the Developing Brain free pdf 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. Illustrations are included in four pages in full color. This book will be important reading for researchers and practitioners in developmental and cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, education, and psychiatry- also of interest to advanced students. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses on learning and the brain, developmental and cognitive neuroscience, and related topics.
