This volume highlights the importance of scientific progress that has been made in the understanding of the neurodevelopmental origins of psychopathology. It presents the work and ideas of some of the most talented researchers in the field. The chapters illustrate the interactional processes that characterize the genesis and maturation of the brain. They demonstrate how constitutional vulnerability to mental disorder can arise from the interplay of multiple factors, some specific and some nonspecific. Moreover, the authors have offered us some invaluable leads on promising directions for future research. Their insights will inspire other investigators to take up the challenge.
