About this book


The development of the brain and nervous system is shaped not just by a genetic program, but also by the effects of multiple environmental stimuli. There are currently no book-length treatments of perinatal neurodevelopment. This book fills this gap by presenting a collection of chapters from leading experts in the field. It is comprehensive and covers all aspects of neurodevelopmental programming in lab animals and in human subjects. The third section of the book looks at ways of translating insights we have garnered from animal studies to human and clinical studies. This book is beneficial for basic researchers interested in the effects of perinatal imprinting on the development of the nervous system and associated diseases.
