During the past years there has been rapid progress in the understanding of how early life stress impacts psychopathology in children. The first two parts of this book present the basic principles of brain development and describe the most important neuronal systems. This includes systems involved in emotion processing, cognitive control, and social processes. These first two general sections are followed by an overview about recent research on various neuronal and psychiatric disorders, where environmental exposures and altered brain development play an important role: sleep, autism, ADHD and other developmental forms of psychopathology.

From the book reviews:"This comprehensive book on the neurobiology of childhood is written by leading international authorities in behavioral neuroscience research. ... it is aimed primarily at researchers, especially those conducting imaging studies who have some baseline knowledge of neurobiology. The audience can extend to child psychiatrists or psychologists interested in better understanding normal brain development and differences in pediatric psychopathology." (Soo Lee, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2014)
