About the Authors
  • Genetic syndromes and neurodevelopmental disorders that have a genetic basis are associated with cognitive and academic disabilities. Genes, Brain and Development reviews the connections between genes, brain, and behavior for a range of genetic disorders, and also considers lifespan and treatment issues. The content further explores what is known about development in neurogenetic disorders, particularly in the domains of language and mathematics, and shows how this knowledge is pertinent to understanding both these specific disorders, and disorders of language and math more generally. This will be essential reading for a wide range of brain scientists and developmental clinicians, including neuropsychologists, cognitive psychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, neuroscientists and geneticists.

    • Discusses language and mathematical abilities across several neurogenetic disorders, allowing readers to compare findings across disorders
    • Highlights the benefits of studying neurogenetic disorders from a lifespan perspective, using longitudinal designs and foregrounding developmental issues
    • Describes the range of developmental, neurogenetic disorders and focuses on how the study of these disorders informs our understanding of neurocognition
