A cognitive behavioral neuroscience perspective is used to explore the normal development of the child, from infancy to adolescence with regard to perception, attention language, learning, memory, executive function, emotion, and social cognition. Brain structures and functions that support these processes developmentally, such as neuroplasticity and critical/sensitive periods are considered, as are the implications of culture and the social context. Scandinavian perspectives are considered where applicable.
