9780199594818: Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across the Lifespan: A neuroconstructivist approach (Oxford Series in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience)

Nowadays, it is widely accepted that there is no single influence (be it nature or nurture) on cognitive development. Cognitive abilities emerge as a result of interactions between gene expression, cortical and subcortical brain networks, and environmental influences. In recent years, our study of neurodevelopmental disorders has provided much valuable information on how genes, brain development, behaviour, and environment interact to influence development from infancy to adulthood.

This is the first book to present evidence on development across the lifespan across these multiple levels of description (genetic, brain, cognitive, environmental). In the book, the authors have chosen a well-defined disorder, Williams syndrome (WS), to explore the impact of genes, brain development, behaviour, as well as the individual's environment on development. WS is used as a model disorder to demonstrate the authors approach to understanding development, whilst being presented in comparison to other neurodevelopmental disorders - Autism, Developmental Dyscalculia, Down syndrome, Dyslexia, Fragile X syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Specific Language Impairment, Turner syndrome - to illustrate differences in development across neurodevelopmental disorders.

Williams syndrome is particularly informative for exploring development: Firstly, it has been extensively researched at multiple levels: genes, brain, cognition and behaviour, as well as in terms of the difficulties of daily living and social interaction. Secondly, it has been studied across the lifespan, with many studies on infants and toddlers with WS as well as a large number on children, adolescents and adults. The authors also explore a number of domain-general and domain-specific processes in the verbal, non-verbal and social domains, across numerous neurodevelopmental disorders. This illustrates, among other factors, the importance of developmental timing, i.e. that the development of a cognitive skill at a specific timepoint can impact on subsequent development within that domain, but also across domains. In addition, the authors discuss the value of investigating basic-level abilities from as close to the infant start-state as possible, presenting evidence of where cross-syndrome comparisons have shed light on the cascading impacts of subtle similarities and discrepancies in early delay or deviance, on subsequent development.

Designed such that readers with an interest in any neurodevelopmental disorder can gain insight into the intricate dynamics of cognitive development, the book covers both theoretical issues and those of clinical relevance. It will be an invaluable reference for any researcher, clinician, student as well as interested parents or teachers wishing to learn about neurodevelopmental disorders from a developmental framework.

About the Author:


Emily Farran is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology, based at the Institute of Education, University of London. Her primary research focus relates to the development of visual and spatial cognition in typical children and in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders. This includes areas such as mental imagery, visuo-spatial perception, spatial language and navigation.

Previously Head of the Neurocognitive Development Unit at UCL's Institute of Child Health, Annette Karmiloff-Smith is now Professorial Research Fellow at Birkbeck's Centre for Brain & Cognitive Development. A Doctorate from Geneva University, where she studied/worked with Piaget. Author of 7 books and over 200 chapters/scientific articles, her writings have been translated into 17 languages.

Review:

A clean and comprehensive account. * BPS Book Review, Jan 2013 * Farran and Karmiloff-Smith do an outstanding job in bringing together researchers who have made exceptional contributions to this field... My hope is that research of the calibre described in this book will ultimately have a significant and long-lasting impact on the lives of affected children and adults, their families, clinicians and educators. * Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Jan 2013 * A detailed and authoritative summary of existing psychological research on Williams Syndrome * Child and Adolescent Mental Health Journal *
