In the World Library of Psychologists series, international experts present career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, and their major practical theoretical contributions.

This influential volume of papers, chosen by Professor Annette Karmiloff-Smith before she passed away, recognises her major contribution to the field of developmental psychology. Published over a 40-year period, the papers included here address the major themes that permeate through Annette’s work: from typical to atypical development, genetics and computation modelling approaches, and neuroimaging of the developing brain. A newly written introduction by Michael S. C. Thomas and Mark H. Johnson gives an overview of her research journey and contextualises her selection of papers in relation to changes in the field over time.

Thinking Developmentally from Constructivism to Neuroconstructivism: Selected Works of Annette Karmiloff-Smith is of great interest to researchers and postgraduates in child development specialising in atypical development, developmental disorders, and developmental neuroscience. It also has appeal to clinical neuropsychologists and rehabilitation professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Annette Karmiloff-Smith changed the field of Developmental Psychology with her thinking. She recognised the importance of ‘development itself’ for understanding both typical and atypical development. In this collection of works, which spans four decades, the reader is introduced to the neuroconstructivist theory that development from infancy to adulthood is a product of multi-level interactions across genes, brain, behaviour and the environment. Annette’s work was and continues to be an inspiration for developmental psychologists. Whilst her presence is sorely missed, her legacy will live on through this volume." - Emily Farran, University College London, UK"Karmiloff-Smith’s explorations of cognitive development and neurocognitive disorders challenge conventional modes of thought about the origins of cognitive abilities and the basis of developmental anomalies. Anyone who hopes to understand and contribute further to these topics will benefit from the distinctive perspectives presented in the articles in this book." – Jay McLelland, Stanford University, USA"Karmiloff-Smith was one of the most important developmental psychologists of her generation. She combined razor sharp critical skills with a profound belief that understanding child development meant understanding the mechanisms that give rise to the changes we see across childhood. This work brings together for the first time in a single volume Annette’s most important papers. Readers will not only have all of her seminal works within access, but will be able to see the evolution of her thinking and the stunning ranging reach of her impact. It is invaluable for students and researchers alike." - Denis Mareschal, University of London, UK
