Advances in Child Neuropsychology, Volume 1
Michael G. Tramontana, Stephen R. Hooper
Springer-Verlag, Dec 1, 1991 - Medical - 239 pages
There has been an explosion of interest in child neuropsychology in recent years. Advances in Child Neuropsychology, a multi-volume book series, is intended to help critically evaluate important developments in this rapidly growing field. Each volume is to consist of carefully selected chapters spanning a broad range of topics pertinent to advanced students and professionals in neuropsychology and related disciplines. The topics and contributing authors for each volume are selected with the input of a diversified group of editorial advisors to help assure a balanced representation of major developments and innovations in the field. The chapters are organized to provide either: 1) an authoritative review of a key substantive area or methodological issue in child neuropsychology or 2) the exposition of an exemplary line of programmatic research or application in the field. These are to be written in a fashion aimed at bridging research and practice, and to reflect the kind of integrative and innovative work truly indicative of advances in child neuropsychology.
