Developing Brains

Oates, John; Karmiloff-Smith, Annette and Johnson, Mark eds. (2012). Developing Brains. Early Childhood in Focus, 7. Milton Keynes: The Open University.

Abstract

This volume in the Early Childhood in Focus series aims to present an overview of the most significant areas of neurodevelopmental research, starting in the first section with sufficient basic explanation of the brain and how it functions for the research to be understood by people with little or no previous knowledge of the field.
The second section gives an overview of the developmental processes involved as the child’s brain grows and matures in constant interaction with the environment, from conception through to adulthood. For children to reach their full potential, supporting the healthy development of their brains is paramount and the powerful effects of early environments, both physical and social, can no longer be ignored. The third section of this volume focuses on these influences.
