This book was originally published in 2004 and concerns developmental neurobiology. In the decade preceding publication, developmental neurobiology made important strides towards elucidating the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders. Nowhere has this link between basic science and clinical insights become clearer than in the field of schizophrenia research. Each contributor to this volume provides a fresh overview of the relevant research, including directions for further investigation. The book begins with a section on advances in developmental neurobiology. This is followed by sections on etiological and pathophysiological developments, and models that integrate this knowledge. The final section addresses the clinical insights that emerge from the developmental models. This book will be valuable to researchers in psychiatry and neurobiology, students in psychology, and all mental health practitioners.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... an excellent book that delivers a scientific map of recent neurodevelopmental concepts.' British Journal of Neuroscience Nursing
Review of the hardback: '... a well-balanced and comprehensive overview that merits to be read by all students of this fascinating and devastating disorder.' Genes, Brain and Behaviour
"This is an excellent book on the relationship between early developmental brain abnormalities and schizophrenia, integrating the developmental and cognitive neurosciences together with genomics/proteonomics. I hope that this book is a step towards the phenomics (phenotyping and diagnosing specific subtypes) and differential therapeutics of schizophrenia. I highly recommend it." -Doody's Review ServiceG
"In all, an excellent book that delivers a scientific map of recent neurodevelopmental concepts." -British Journal of Neuroscience Nursing
"The book is highly recommended as an addition to the libraries of those professionals involved in clinical care or research with individuals with severe psychiatric disability. It is dense, thought provoking, and worth the effort." -JINS, Bernice A. Marcopulos, PhD, University of Virginia
"The editors of Neurodevelopment and Schizophrenia have tapped the talents of some 56 authorities ... to produce one of the most richly rewarding reading experiences that I have had in some time. Without exception, the contributors to this volume provide fresh, interesting, and valuable material from which all persons with a serious interest in schizophrenia can benefit." -Psychiatric Services, Frederick J. Frese, PhD
