Taking development seriously, a festschrift for Annette Karmiloff-Smith : neuroconstructivism and the multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the emergence of mind, edited by Michael S.C. Thomas, Denis Mareschal, and Victoria Knowland

"This influential festschrift honours the legacy of Annette Kamiloff-Smith, a seminal thinker in the field of child development and a pioneer in developmental neuroscience. The current volume brings together many of the researchers, collaborators, and students who worked with Dr Kamiloff-Smith to show how her ideas have influenced and continue to influence their own research. Taking Development Seriously is essential reading for students and scholars in child development and developmental neuroscience"--, Provided by publisher
