The developing human brain: growth and adversities (clinics in developmental medicine 193)

Published:February 25, 2013DOI:
      Much of the structural connectivity of neural systems that sub-serves the highest cognitive functions is established in fetal life and infancy. Over the past three decades, there have been tremendous advances in understanding how neural systems develop, and some of the early life adversities that disturb them are now known. This leap in knowledge has come from advances in several disciplines including imaging science, fetal medicine, neuropathology and immunohistochemistry. Floyd H Gilles and Martin D Nelson Jr have succeeded in the formidable task of synthesising this new information with a panoramic view of the landmark studies of the past. The result is a general text that is informative, authoritative and profoundly interesting.
