Summary
  • "Educating the Human Brain, the product of a quarter century of research, provides an empirical account of the early development of attention and self-regulation in infants and young children
  • It examines the brain areas involved in regulatory networks, their connectivity, and how their development is influenced by genes and experience
  • Relying on the latest techniques in cognition and temperament measurement, neuroimaging, and molecular genetics, the book integrates research on neural networks common to all humans with studies of individual differences."
  • "The authors explain where, when, and how the brain performs functions that are necessary for learning
  • Such functions include attending to information; controlling attention through effort; regulating the interplay of emotion with cognition; and coding, organizing, and retrieving information. The authors suggest how these aspects of brain development can support school readiness, literacy, numeracy, and expertise
  • The audience for this book includes neuroscientists as well as developmental and educational psychologists who have interest in the latest brain research
  • The many helpful visuals - including brain diagrams, pictures and photographs of experimental setups, and graphs and tables displaying key data - also give this book appeal for graduate students."--BOOK JACKET
