Overview

This is an important book on the role of neurodevelopmental factors in the pathogenesis of the major psychiatric disorders. An international group of experts, including many of those responsible for the ideas that have come to dominate current thinking, reviews the fields of developmental neurobiology, clinical psychiatry, and behavioral neuroscience. The first section, "The Developing Brain", reviews neurodevelopment from the molecular to the behavioral level. Section Two, "Development and Psychopathology", covers clinical applications of the basic principles of developmental neurobiology. The third and final section, "Integrative Models", presents approaches toward a synthesis of neurodevelopmental and clinical findings in psychiatric disorder.
