Devoted to exploring relationships between brain and behavior across the life span, this journal publishes scholarly papers on the appearance and development of behavioral functions such as language, perception, and cognitive processes as they relate to brain functions and structures. Appropriate subjects include early cognitive behaviors in normal and brain-damaged children, plasticity and recovery of function after early brain damage, the development of complex cognitive and motor skills, and specific and nonspecific disturbances such as learning disabilities, mental retardation, schizophrenia, stuttering, and developmental aphasia. In the gerontologic areas, they include neuropsychological analyses of normal age-related changes in brain and behavioral functions such as sensory, motor, cognitive, and adaptive abilities; studies of age-related diseases of the nervous system; and recovery of function in later life. Empirical studies, research reviews, case reports, critical commentary, and book reviews are featured in each issue. By publishing both basic and clinical studies of the developing and aging brain, the journal encourages additional scholarly work that advances understanding of the field of developmental neuropsychology.
