"A tour de force for those interested in the intersection of brain and cognitive development; beautifully written, thoroughly researched and highly accessible. This landmark book should be required reading for anyone interested in the intersection of brain, development and cognition."

Charles A. Nelson III, Professor of Pediatrics and Neuroscience, Harvard Medical School, Harvard Graduate School of Education and Boston Children's Hospital

"Johnson and de Haan continue to provide an excellent overview of a vast and fast moving field. The new method for imaging the human brain while at rest provides support for the interactive specialization framework that organizes the research reported in this new edition."

Michael Posner, Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience, University of Oregon

"Johnson and de Haan have done an incredible service to the field with this important book. It's a must for experts and students alike. It is extremely thorough and well-written, covering an interdisciplinary field in a way that is both informative and exciting."

Dima Amso, Associate Professor, Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences, Brown University

The Fourth Edition of the definitive text that helped to found this field is thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest research findings focusing on the development of brain and behavior during infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Offering readers a comprehensive introduction to all facets of the complex nature of brain-behavior relationships and development, chapters provide coverage of the theoretical foundations and evolution of the field, along with major content areas that include object and face perception, speech and language, memory, executive function, and social processing. Updates to the Fourth Edition include new or greatly expanded coverage of such topics as epigenetics and gene expression, cell migration and stem cells, sleep and learning/memory, socioeconomic status and development of prefrontal cortex function, and genetic and environmental risk factors in human brain development. The authors have also added a new chapter on educational neuroscience, which features the latest findings on the application of cognitive neuroscience methods in school-age educational contexts.

Enhancing its position in the vanguard of this rapidly expanding field, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, Fourth Edition, is an invaluable resource for gaining insights into myriad issues at the intersection of brain and cognitive development.
