BeschreibungThis major new undergraduate textbook provides students with everything they need when studying developmental psychology.' Guiding students through the key topics against the latest findings on brain development and neuroscience, the book takes a chronological approach to developmental psychology by highlighting the key milestones at each age, making clear links between changes in behaviour and developments in brain activity. Each chapter also highlights both typical and atypical developments, as well as discussing and contrasting the effects of both genetic and environmental factors. It is accompanied by online supplementary resources, including a wealth of exclusive video clips to illustrate key developmental concepts.
