This accessibly written book explores how increasing knowledge of neuroscience and advances in methods of investigation are changing our understanding of child development. Examining key aspects of development such as emotion, memory, learning, perception, and language, as well as brain structure and neurodevelopmental disorders, Child Development and the Brain offers insight into the connections between brain development and how children think and feel. Packed with illustrations, case studies, reflection points, suggestions for further reading, and complete with a full glossary of technical terms, this book links science and practice and provides social science students and childcare workers with a valuable introduction to the science behind the child brain.
