One of the more intriguing and perplexing questions in the brain damage literature on human patients and laboratory animals concerns the nature of the relationship between the organism's developmental status at the time of brain damage and the capacity for sparing or recovery of function. Almost 50 years ago, Margaret Kennard suggested that early brain damage may not be as deleterious as later brain damage & hypothesized that this reflected a greater capacity for reorganization in the immature nervous system. But is there always greater sparing and recovery following early brain damage, and what evidence is there for neutral reorganization on an anatomical or a physiological level? Even today the associations between age at the time of brain damage, performance, and developmental biology are far from understood. It is in this context that this volume was assembled. The authors asked noted workers to summarize and integrate their experiments and observations pertaining to early brain damage, & compiled a series of chapters that emphasized the most salient new findings and developments in the field. This volume (vol. 1), is a collection of chapters oriented toward early brain damage in human clinical populations. The volume is divided into four parts. Part I presents research strategies & theoretical issues, such as intermodal compensation and evolutionary considerations, relating to early brain-damage phenomena. Part II presents research on animal models of infant neuropathological conditions such as hypoxia, fetal radiation, locomotor hyperactivity, & attentional disorders. Part III is concerned with short-term and long-term neurological effects of brain damage in children, including chapters on perinatal asphyxia, behavioral consequences of cerebral insult sustained during infancy, & correlates of early generalized brain dysfunction in children. Part IV focuses on cerebral lateralization and higher-order functions as they are altered by early brain damage.
