About this title:

Synopsis: Advances in the neurocognitive sciences, aided by increased imaging power, have extensively confirmed that during early development specific areas of a child's brain are designed to process specific functions - neurologic, cognitive, linguistic, motoric, and visuospatial, among others - and that this processing involves globally complex interconnections with other areas distributed throughout the brain: a lesion in a given area interferes with the functioning and coherence of the stem as a whole. This volume discusses the consequences of early brain injury to many parts of the brain, including the basal ganglia, with their related disorders of aphasia, OCD, and AD/HD, as well as white matter and its associated neuro-psychological impairment of intelligence, language, and visuoperception. The corpus callosum and cerebellum are studied as they relate to learning motor sequences and language as well as communication disorders and social behaviour. This book also looks at mirror neurons as they affect the understanding of others' intentions and the development of empathy and gestural and other forms of language. The implications of these findings are examined since they have a critical effect on the rehabilitative and educational efforts that are being designed to mitigate the effects of early brain lesions on the growing child.

Book Description JOHN LIBBEY, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: NEUF. Les avancées dans les sciences cognitives, favorisées par la puissance actuelle des techniques d'imagerie, ont largement confirmé que, pendant le développement précoce, certaines zones du cerveau de l'enfant sont destinées à assurer des fonctions spécifiques - neurologiques, cognitives, linguistiques, motrices et visuospatiales, notamment - et que le traitement de ces informations faisait intervenir des interconnections complexes globales avec d'autres régions, distribuées dans l'ensemble du cerveau : une lésion dans une zone donnée interfère avec le fonctionnement et la cohérence du système dans son entier.Cet ouvrage traite des conséquences des lésions cérébrales précoces dans de nombreuses régions du cerveau, notamment les noyaux gris centraux, avec leurs troubles associés - aphasie, TOC et TDAH - et la matière blanche et ses altérations neuropsychologiques associées de l'intelligence, du langage et de la perception visuelle. Le corps calleux et le cervelet sont étudiés dans la mesure où ils sont liés à l'apprentissage de séquences motrices et du langage, ainsi qu'avec les troubles de la communication et le comportement social.Cet ouvrage aborde également les neurones miroirs dans la mesure où ils affectent la compréhension des intentions des autres et le développement de l'empathie et de la gestuelle, mais également d'autres formes de langage.Les conséquences de ces résultats sont examinées sous l'angle de leur impact majeur sur les efforts de rééducation et d'éducation qui sont mis en place pour atténuer les effets des lésions cérébrales précoces chez l'enfant en croissance. - Nombre de page(s) : 239 - Poids : 626g - Langue : eng - Genre : Sciences Médecine en langue anglaise.
