Overview

To acquaint developmental biologists and neuroscientists with what has been learned about human psychological development and to introduce developmental psychologists to current biological evidence, Kagan (developmental psychology, Harvard) and Herschkowitz (pediatrics, U. of Bern) summarize some initial conclusions about human development and brain growth, based on recent research. They propose that development is the process of experience working on a brain that is undergoing significant biological maturation. The authors note that the current state of knowledge does not permit firm conclusions, and they encourage further study. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
