Academic psychologists in every subfield are going through what Charles Nelson calls "the brain craze." As technology has made imaging of the brain relatively easy, noninvasive, and inexpensive, every psychologist is using pictures of the brain to show biological connections to feelings and behavior. This book explains how brain imaging sheds light on how the brain develops both normally and abnormally.
