What are the processes, from conception to adulthood, that enable a single cell to grow into a sentient adult? The processes that occur along the way are so complex that any attempt to understand development necessitates a multi-disciplinary approach, integrating data from cognitive studies, computational work, and neuroimaging. This book is the first volume in a two-volume publication that presents an integrative new framework for considering development. The chapters give reviews of up-to-to date findings from neurobiology, brain imaging, child development, and computer and robotic modellin ... More
