In recent years there has been a shift within developmental psychology away from examining the cognitive systems at different ages, to trying to understand exactly what are the mechanisms that generate change. What kind of learning mechanisms and representational changes drive cognitivedevelopment? How can the imaging techniques available help us to understand these mechanisms?This new volume in the highy cited and critically acclaimed Attention and Performance series is the first to provide a systematic investigation into the processes of change in mental development. It brings together world class scientists to address brain and cognitive development at severaldifferent levels, including phylogeny, genetics, neurophysiology, brain imaging, behavior, and computational modeling, across both typically and atypically developing populations. Presenting original new research from the frontiers of cognitive neuroscience, this book will have a substantial impactin this field, as well as on developmental psychology and developmental neuroscience.

Editorial Reviews

`This is the most prestigious and highly regarded series of edited volumes on cognitive psychology that exist in the field. Each volume has described research at the cutting edge, and there have been numerous A and P citation classics.'Jon Driver, University College London
