Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across the Lifespan

A neuroconstructivist approach

Edited by Emily K. Farran and Annette Karmiloff-Smith

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

  • The first book to consider atypical development across multiple levels (genes, brain, behaviour, environment), encouraging readers to think dynamically and developmentally, rather than examining static snapshots of neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Provides the most comprehensive review of development across cognitive domains (and their interactions), making clinicians more sensitive to looking for underlying cognitive and neural differences even when behavioural scores are in the normal range.
  • Considers development from infancy to adulthood, encouraging the reader to think about the importance of development in understanding neurodevelopmental disorders, for example, by considering the impact that differences in low-level processes in infancy can have on later developing cognitive processes.
