The development of the human brain is one of the most important concerns of contemporary biology, with profound implications for medicine and society. In this book a distinguished international team of clinicians, neuroscientists and geneticists presents recent findings about the basic mechanisms of brain development and the pathophysiology of the infant brain. The book follows the major milestones of brain development, from formation of the neural tube, through neurogenesis, neuronal migration, and the organization of brain wiring. Neurotrophic factors, transmitters, glial cell biology, cerebral circulation and the development of sensory functions are all described in detail, and the authors emphasize the clinical applications of basic neuroscience. Coverage extends from the normal to the disordered brain in preterm and full term infants. At a time of rapid and exciting advances in developmental neurobiology, this book provides a uniquely authoritative survey for scientists and clinicians alike.
