First edition, winner of the 2001 Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc., in the category of Single Volume Reference: Science. The publication of the second edition of this handbook testifies to the rapid evolution of developmental cognitive neuroscience as a distinct field. Brain imaging and recording technologies, along with well-defined behavioral tasks-the essential methodological tools of cognitive neuroscience--are now being used to study development. Technological advances have yielded methods that can be safely used to study structure-function relations and their development in children's brains. These…
