Overview

There has been a burgeoning of interest in the relation between biological development--particularly brain development--and behavioral development. This shift in focus does a better job of reflecting the whole child and all of development. Not surprisingly, many of the individuals who are concerned with the theoretical side of brain-behavior relations are also concerned with the more practical side. The chapters that comprise this 31st volume of the Minnesota Symposium series collectively capture the subtle dance between the biological and behavioral aspects of early adversity as it influences neurobehavioral development. Individuals interested in this volume represent the disciplines of developmental psychology and psychopathology, child psychiatry, toxicology, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, behavioral neurology, and special education.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Continuing the effort to integrate the highly specialized areas of psychology, researchers, most from the University of Minnesota, explore the subtle relationship between biological development and behavioral development. In eight studies, they discuss such topics as early nutrition and brain development, medical and developmental sequelae of early childhood institutionalization in eastern European adoptees, a nonhuman primate model for the effect of prenatal stress on development, the origins for vulnerability to depression, and familial and genetic factors and psychopathology.
