Contemporary Neuroscience

Mammalian Brain Development

Editors: Janigro, Damir (Ed.)

  • Fills a gap in developmental books dealing with the normal prenatal mammalian brain by focusing on both the pre-natal and the peri-natal events that lead to brain damage
  • Discusses major topics in detail, like sexual dimorphism, epigenetic action of gonadal hormones, environmental "programming" effects, autism, developmental learning disorders, seizures, and the etiopathogenesis of epileptic syndromes in young humans
  • Also covers general aspects of postnatal and pediatric neurological disorders by offering definitions of innate aspects of the mammalian brain in regards to its development

About this book

This book charts the way forward through the field of mammalian brain development, in which the integration of biological function can occur at all levels between the gene and the organism itself. Mammalian Brain Development examines the traditional "nature versus nurture" argument in the spectrum of brain development, discussing in particular sex differences in spatial perception ability, phenotype plasticity, disorders of brain development, Blood-Brain and placental barriers, chromosome abnormalities, as well as the use of imaging techniques. Geared toward neuroscientists, neurologists, pediatricians, pediatric psychiatrists, and neuroimmunologists, this volume paves the way toward the realization that the development of an individual is fundamentally an interaction between its genes and environment.
