Attention, Genes, and Developmental Disorders

Kim Cornish and John Wilding

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

  • Focuses on attention and its development, both typical and atypical, particularly in disorders with a known genetic etiology or assumed genetic linkage
  • Aims to provide the most authoritative and extensive account of disorder-specific attention profiles and their development, from infancy through adolescence
  • ses three specific-yet-interlinking levels of analysis—genetic blueprint (genotype), the developing brain, and the behavioral–cognitive outcomes (phenotype)—as the basis for charting the attention profiles of six well-documented neurodevelopmental disorders: ADHD, autism, fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, and 22q11 deletion syndrome
  • Reports on the advances in research that have culminated in a wealth of new methods for elucidating disorders at multiple levels
  • Brings together work from molecular genetics, pediatric neurology, child psychiatry, developmental cognitive neuroscience, and education
