About the Authors
  • This collection of articles by scientists from various disciplines discusses all the significant conceptual and empirical advances in the study of behavioral development. A special feature of the approach taken here is that learning is considered to be one process contributing to the development of the individual from conception to death. The brain's development is also discussed in relation to behavioral processes.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Considering the variety of its topics, the obvious expertise of its contributors and the scope of the research they discuss (most chapters contain 50 to 100 references), it is difficult to imagine how anyone interested in behavioral development would fail to be informed by the wealth of material documented in the pages of this landmark volume." Howard S. Hoffman, Contemporary Psychology
