Overview

There has been an explosion of interest in child neuropsychology in recent years. Advances in Child Neuropsychology, a multi-volume book series, is intended to help highlight, summarize, and critically evaluate important developments in this rapidly growing field. Each volume consists of material pertinent to advanced students and professionals in neuropsychology and related disciplines - researchers and clinicians alike. The topics and contributing authors are selected with the input of a diversified group of editorial advisors to help assure a balanced representation of innovations and integrative work truly indicative of advances in child neuropsychology.
Like the preceding two volumes, the contents of Volume 3 span the areas of developmental neuropsychology, abnormal neuropsychology, assessment and treatment. Topics include additional findings pertaining to electrophysiological responses obtained during infancy and their relation to later language development; the neurotoxic effects of lead; advances in brain imaging and in both qualitative and quantitative approaches to neuropsychological assessment; and the application of hemispheric stimulation techniques in dyslexic children.
