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 — an approach till now seldom taken in the study of child development. This book seeks to redress this balance, presenting an integrative new framework for considering development. Computer and robotic models provide concrete tools for investigating the processes and me ... More

Keywords: cognitive studies, computational work, neuroimaging, child development, neuroconstructivist, connectionist neural network models, multi-agent models, robotic models, autism, specific language impairment
