Summary
"In this first compendium in the growing literature of behavioral teratology, readers will discover an easy-to-access, concise presentation that: synthesizes important findings that help explain why prenatal events may result in abnormal behavior and learning disabilities later in life; examines the role of prenatal perturbations, along with genetics and the postnatal roles of caretakers and the social environment, in light of how each may - individually or together - contribute to conditions as varied as dyslexia, schizophrenia, fetal alcohol syndrome, and autism; ensures that effective prevention and intervention can occur during the prenatal phases of development; addresses the research needs in behavioral teratology that are likely to lead to discoveries that may ensure the birth of healthier babies who develop normally across the lifespan; and provides a brief medical glossary that details terminology specifically related to fetal development and birth."--Jacket
