"A fascinating introduction to the rapidly developing field of developmental cognitive neuroscience and its implications for advancing our understanding of developmental psychopathology. It should be particularly valuable in orienting graduate students to exciting new possibilities for increasing understanding and remediation of debilitating disabilities." - PsycCRITIQUES "In this valuable collection, leading scientists present the latest findings about the biological bases of developmental disorders, including dyslexia, autism, and attentional deficits. The book also includes early markers for these disorders, as well as appropriate educational interventions." - Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA "The stellar array of authors represented in this volume guarantees that the reader will be provided with state-of-the-art information about neurodevelopmental disorders. No undergraduate or graduate course on the topic can do without this book." - Uta Frith, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Department of Psychology, University College London, UK "In synthesizing the fields of cognitive and affective neuroscience and developmental psychopathology, the book presents novel conceptual and methodological tools for studying adaptive, maladaptive, and resilient developmental outcomes." - Dante Cicchetti, Institute of Child Development and Department of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota, USA
