Infancy is a time of rapid growth, when brain plasticity is at a maximum. Event-related potentials (ERPs) are one of the few methods that can easily and safely be used to study this process, and have led to exciting discoveries about human brain functioning and the neural basis of cognition.

Over recent years, there has been a massive rise in the level of interest in ERPs and this book considers the advantages which they offer to researchers and clinicians. In particular, it looks at the benefits of this form of neuroimaging as a non-invasive tool for detecting impairments in brain and cognitive development very early in life. The potential use of ERPs for clinical settings is also explored in detail. The contributions are all from eminent researchers in the field and represent the latest thought on the topic.

Infant EEG and Event-Related Potentials explains the basics of event-related potentials for those less familiar with the procedures and terminology, as well as offering a valuable handbook of the latest theories and empirical findings for those working in the field. This will be a valuable source for those interested in developmental psychology and neuropsychology, and for clinicians interested in application of ERPs.

Reviews

"Infant EEG and Event-Related Potentials does an excellent job of covering the varied perspectives and areas of study that make up the field of infant-focused developmental cognitive neuroscience. I anticipate that it will assume the reputation as the principal reference for this growing discipline." - Susan W. Parker, Department of Psychology, Randolph-Macon College

"Both experienced and novice researchers in the field will find Infant EEG and Event-Related Potentials an informative reference for infant EEG and ERP research… Michelle de Haan has compiled an outstanding body of knowledge on infant EEG and ERP research to serve as a reference in this field… this book provides a thorough and invaluable reference of the current knowledge and future direction of infant EEG and ERP research.' - Joan Y. Chiao & Genna M. Bebko, PsycCRITIQUES

About the Editor:

Michelle de Haan is a Senior Lecturer at the University College London Institute of Child Health and Honorary Neuropsychologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust. She obtained her PhD in child psychology and neuroscience from the University of Minnesota in 1996. Her current research focuses on understanding the roles of brain development and life experience in normal and atypical development of memory and of perception of social information.
