About the Author

MICHELLE de HAAN, PhD is Professor in Infant and Child Development at University College London Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, UK. She is Editor of Developmental Science, and an international figure in the field of clinical and developmental social and cognitive neuroscience, with an emphasis on the early years and electrophysiological and behavioural methods.

IROISE DUMONTHEIL, PhD., is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London. Her research focuses on the typical development of the brain, cognition and behaviour during childhood and adolescence, in particular in the domains of social cognition and cognitive control, and on potential implications of neuroscience research for education.

MARK H. JOHNSON, FBA, PhD., is Professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Cambridge, UK, and Professor at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London. A founding leader of developmental cognitive neuroscience, his research focuses on both the typical and atypical development of the brain, cognition and behaviour over the first three years postnatal.
