A visual exploration of how the brain develops throughout our lives. Just as neurons communicate through mutual stimulation, brains strive to connect with one another. Louis Cozolino shows us how brains are highly social organisms. Balancing cogent explanation with instructive brain diagrams, he presents an atlas of sorts, illustrating how the architecture and development of brain systems - from before birth through adulthood - determine how we interact with others. 'This book provides an excellent and easily understood story about the connections of social child development and neuroscience. This is a mustfor anyone interested in human behavior.' Lonnie Zeltzer, M.D., Director, Pediatric Pain Program, Professor of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA 'Captivating and well written, The Neuroscience of Human Relationships is a major contribution to the rapidly emerging field of neuro-psychoanalysis. Everyone practicing or interested in the emerging fields of mind and brain sciences should read it.' Cristina Alberini, Ph.D., Departments of Neuroscience and Psychiatry, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, New York 'Lou Cozolino has created a comprehensive tour of the social brain, illuminating to both scientists and lay readers.' Lise Elliot, Ph.D., Department of Neuroscience, The Chicago Medical School, and author of What's Going On In There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life
