This new text consists of parts of Bornstein & Lamb#xE2;#xAC;"s classic text, Developmental Science, 6th edition, along with new introductory material that provides a general overview of the field of cognitive development. As a whole the book provides students with a cutting edge and comprehensive perspective on cognitive development.#xE3;#xAC;#xAC; Each of the world-renowned contributors masterfully introduces the history and systems, methodologies, and measurement and analytic techniques used to understand the area of human development under review. The relevance of the field is illustrated through engaging applications in each chapter. Each chapter reflects the current state of the field and features an introduction, an up-to-date overview of the field, a chapter summary, and numerous classical and contemporary references. As a whole, this highly-anticipated text illuminates substantive phenomena in cognitive developmental science and its relevance to everyday life. Students and instructors will appreciate the book#xE2;#xAC;"s website. The following items are included for each chapter: outlines; a student reading guide; a glossary of key terms & concepts; and suggested readings with hotlinks to journal articles. Only instructors are granted access to the test bank, Power Points, and suggestions for classroom discussion/assignments. The book opens with an introduction to cognitive development as well as an overview of developmental science in general -- its history and theory, the cultural orientation to thinking about human development, and the manner in which empirical research is designed, conducted, and analyzed. Part 2 focuses on the field#xE2;#xAC;"s major substantive areas: neuroscience and genetics, physical and motor development, perception, and cognitive and language development. Ways in which developmental thinking and research affect and are affected by practice and social policy are emphasized. Intended for advanced undergraduate and/or graduate level courses on cognitive development taught in departments of psychology, human development, and education, researchers in these areas will also appreciate this book#xE2;#xAC;"s cutting edge coverage.
